I used paper, acrylic paint and a brush.
I first painted the all paper in very dark blue.

Then I loaded different paints on the brush and followed Jenny Komenda's secret : "The real trick to painting anything with a brus is to load the brush with a consistant amount of paint every time, lay the paint down smoothly the first time and then resist every temptation to go back over what you have done".

Then I Q-tiped the white dots... (I practiced a bit before)

The trick is to balance the colors...

I framed it in a Ikea Ribba frame... and this is how it turned out :

I am very pleased with it. Below with the flashlight.

I hung it above Anouk's park. This creates such a colorfull nook.
