Leaving Pluto

I was inspired to make an abstract background when I saw the space paintings of the artist, Peter Thorpe. I painted randomly placed horizontal and vertical lines in different colours using acrylic paint to represent space. I drew the rocket using felt pens and I really like it's shape and the fire blast. This was a fun picture to make for our space topic at school.
