Picture references for Variation 3
Variation #3 is Léon as a Constellation. Again, I was inspired by a picture. The drawing of Ursa Major (the Big Bear) and I decided to create a constellation for Léon. My main requirement was that the picture look as if it were quite old. I wanted the feeling of parchment paper. To get that feeling across I painted my colours quite muted and dusty, with an overlay of white-wash. Gnoums Nordiucs us unlabelled, I have not done any writing to name stars, but that might be something that I play with in the future.
