I wanted to have a representation of the southern sky in my collection, and even though Urulu is not an archeological site, it is probably the most important ancient monument for the aboriginal Australians. This site is so important that nobody is supposed to climb it. Urulu is located in the very heart of Australia, and is believed to be the place where "the spirits of the creator being inhabit".
For this work, I used Daniel Smith Primatek Sedona Genuine watercolor. This pigment is made from soil of Sedona (Arizona) which has a very particular red tone. It is a mineral color so it provides a natural granulation and a great choice for painting Urulu in my opinion.
The sky was made using liquid watercolor and white ink for the stars and the constellations sticks. The Centaur, the constellation on the right side, is where the closest star to the Solar System can be found: Alpha Centauri. Although Alpha Centauri is a triple system, and technically Proxima Centauri is the closet star to us. The location of this triple system (that looks like a single star to our eyes) is the front hoof of the Centaur and is known as Rigil Kentaurus. It is one of the brightest stars in the southern sky.
