Aether Worlds - more paintings and planets

The Aether Worlds series has now developed into a total of 12 paintings and 18 planets...

I find the use of oil paint to create different effects absolutely fascinating and the "Aether Worlds" series has given me a great "blank canvas" to work out methods using palette knives and the dynamic results that can be achieved... and a few brushes here and there.

More textures can be created by using a medium (I use Liquin) to thin the paint to create further layers of colour.

Of course as this series progressed, the more "planets" I found in the original paintings, so I decided to split these into the first nine planets and then the outer planets.
