Gamma delphinus - July 26th from provence
      #5994641 - 07/28/13 12:20 PM Attachment (25 downloads)

Gamma delphinus is a double star 100 light year from us. The components are beautifully different colored. I often thought that the colour of the second star is a strange blue-green. Its a watercolor. It was made in workshop after two sketches made on the spot. The technique is that of inversion, the two gamma delphinus stars, respectively, were painted in purple and orange-red, the other classical black stars on a white sky. I just had to reverse all while scanning.
Material used : Antoine's Dobson 12" with 10mm Delos

Michel,

This is very nicely done,
The inversion technique works very well for star color.
