Green Planet and Sun by Joshua-Mozes Green Planet and Sun by Joshua-Mozes
Acrylics on canvas - 1999 (100 x 70 cm)

This is astronomically impossible, the green and red planet are TOO close to the sun.

In reality they would burn up, or ripped to pieces through the sun's gravityfield...:(

But hey, i'm an artist, i'm intitled to use my "artistic freedom", beside, if I would do this in scale the painting would be honderds of meters long (or longer even...)

edit: This is hopefully a better version, showing the colors as they really are.

Lovely! I absolutely love your shadings in the planets. My last attempt at painting planets was a failure: [link] Can you give me some tips maybe?

The last few days I have thought of your question. A mini-tutorial of how to paint a planet . Never done this before, so here I go.

Start with a circle. Make a base color and some stucture (rocky, moonlike, vulcanic, gasplanet etc) Decide where the light side and dark side of the planet will come. Paint two opposite cresents, one dark one light.

If your planet is - for example- green, the dark side cresent will be dark-green (green with a little black, or yellow with darkblue) The light side will be yellow with white.

What I use is the wet-on-wet technique (alle prima in italian)

On the edge of dark cresent (still wet) you paint the base color of your planet. Then with a clean dry brush you "knit" the two colors together. You can use your fingers if you like or a clean sponge (CLEAN! NOT a used one!) if you're painting a large surface. The same you do with the light cresent. The smooth color gamma gives the planet a round form.

To camouflage little mistakes, I always make a planet "aura" in a light color. Specially on the dark side so it stands out to the dark background. If you not sure if your planet is perfectly round you use a cup, plate, or compasses to check that.

Hopefully these tips help you :)


Two links of how to make a planet in Photoshop or GIMP. It might inspire you. :D
