100 Watercolors #15 - Silence

For this theme, I figured the only thing quieter than space, is a MIME in space!  I had a good time layering a bunch of colors to get a nice rich space backdrop.  I used a dark green, then a dark blue and then a layer of black over the top.  I also used some masking fluid to make sure the star areas stayed white while I was putting in all those dark colors.  Then I hit them with a little blue to push them back, so the pure white on the characters would pop a little more.  This one was fun!

Next week's theme: Questioning
