A painting of a false color photo from Jupiter by NASA.

Jupiter’s Portrait

This acrylic painting was inspired by a composite photo of NASA NIRCam. It unveils auroras on both poles, swirling hazes and the awe-inspiring Great Red Spot, a famous storm that is over 300 years old. The brightness indicates high altitude – so the Great Red Spot appears white in this view while clouds with a lower altitude appear darker and blue.

I have to admit, it was quite some fun to do this and although challenging I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Photo Credit to @nasawebb, @esawebb, CSA, Jupiter ERS Team, with image processing magic by Ricardo Hueso and Judy Schmidt.
