Natalie Briney Artist

'Urania' The Muse of astronomy


Painted for my 'Muses' Solo Exhibition at Stala Gallery in 2019.

Urania meaning “heavenly” or “of heaven," is the Muse of astronomy and astronomical writings. This Muse is usually depicted dressed in a cloak embroidered with stars with her eyes and attention focused on the heavens and a celestial globe which she is pointing to with a rod.

Acrylic on Canvas

Framed in a thin silver frame 

122 cm (W) x 122 cm (H) x 4cm (D)

'Erato' has a base layer of torn music sheet paper glued onto the canvas. I then build up layers of shading with pencil for the delicate facial features, pointillism with acrylic paint for her hair, swan, wings  and the background which gives each piece texture and depth.
