In Honor of Webb

This work started out as a digital study with primary colors. I was trying to make a “painterly” amorphous composition applying those colors to somehow create compositional unity. It was begun just before the exciting release of the first images from the Webb Space Telescope. Seeing these striking images steered me in the direction of space with its multitude of nebulae and galaxies. As I worked on this composition it evolved from an abstract of just colors to a fanciful representation of what we might see in future images from Webb.

This composition was digitally created in Procreate app for iPad using an Apple Pencil.
