Carina Nebula by Touch!

So I've been mixing media, playing with layering Golden acrylic mediums and gels, building texture and watching them interact... I've also been getting ready to paint in oil, I want to paint Nebulae and I can see the in oil, with layers and layers of soft translucent glazing building these beautiful gassy colourfields.
But again, I don't want to separate processes in my practice, I want to find my own 'unified thoery' of painting so I considered starting these oils on my mixed media grounds. 

Then I found this image...It was so close to what I had imagined for my work!

This is an image of the Carina Nebula (one of my top 5 favorites) shown in texture! It's so amazing, check out!
