Scribble Picnic - Stars

Time ran away from me again this week so it will be a quick post and run for now.

This week's prompt for Scribble Picnic is STARS. 

I was thinking of the Don McLean song 'Vincent' where part of the lyrics are 

Starry, starry night, 
Paint your palette blue and grey 

SO, a starry night sky was in order. I will admit that this was my third attempt as I've never done a night sky in watercolours before. I have done a few in acrylics with reasonable results but that's it.

In keeping with my thought process for the prompt this week, I've included the music video clip of the song - Vincent. Enjoy!

See you next week at the picnic!


  1. This is so lovely Serena, very challenging in watercolour I am sure, getting all those stars done.

    1. Thanks, Christine! The stars were actually the easiest and quickest part as I just spattered them on with white gouache. :)

  2. Great post, Mum! I love your starry night picture, really does look amazing, and you did a great job with watercolour in my opinion! Don McLean's "Vincent" is a great song to be inspired by.

    Love Brad xo

  3. That's beautiful Serena!!! I love the colours and the effect of the white. I have a starry kind of sky painting half done that I couldn't finish in time, but when I do, I'll post it on IG. :)

  4. very pretty! :D great colours and light to it :)

  5. Oh, I love your watercolor starry night!! And I always liked that song. :)

  6. That turned out beautifully!
    Hadn't heard the song for a long time. It takes me right back a few :-) years!

  7. I do love that song. And your starry night turned out wonderfully.

  8. Serena, amazing the way you did this with only anthirdnattempt. I think I couldn’t ever do that, let alone as well, I amzing! Thank you so much.
