This also has to be one of my favorite paintings. The galaxy background is depicted through colours of black, blue and purple. Although it can't really be seen in the top part of the painting, the background fading in my opinion has been done very well. The darker colours of the background give good contrast between the planet balloons and it makes them stand out. Although there are only 8 planets in the solar system, I decided to include the moon as the 9th. The only change I would make to this painting would be the yellow smudge on the big star to the right of the painting. Overall, my peers rated this painting a 9/10.
