Create a beautiful work of art!

"Stargazer" will help you understand how to create a realistic nighttime ocean scene of a star-filled sky featuring a beautifully rendered, colorful, Milky way galaxy. Through the use of our custom designed, high-resolution, stencils you will paint the "Lady Washington," a tall ship featured in the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean." set against the the beauty of the night. Freehand, blending, and stenciling techniques will be taught.

The kit includes access to online, streaming video content, that walks you step-by-step through the instructions on using the stencils and tools.

You will use multiple techniques with the airbrush, included tools, and even household chemicals* to create a realistic and convincing nighttime scene that never could have captured as perfectly with a camera.

The reference photo is produced on a high resolution Giclée printer and is a one-to-one corresponding size to the stencils and painting surface.

A two-part high-resolution stencil will be included to assist with rendering the ship.
