Painting from Hubble

At the Astronomical Art panel at Norwescon this past weekend, the three artists from the International Association of Astronomical Artists (Joy Day, Jeff Sturgeon, and Bill Hartmann) mentioned that their members talked about a continuum from the “swirlies” whose approach is space inspired fantasy without getting too into specific details, and at the other end those who strive for as much scientific accuracy as possible.  While definitely most of my work falls into the swirly end of things — I spend some time at APOD and then put reference away before painting — I have also attempted a few more specific interpretations of my favorite astronomical subjects.

At this point, I’ve done at least three pieces trying to capture Zeta Oph and its shock wave (all before I started taking good pictures of my jewelry, unfortunately)

Some of my favorites:
