Half way through painting this I thought to myself “..but where are the shadows on our moon, really?” and I googled forth some reference pictures. Trust me, sometimes it’s better to just make stuff up. Everything doesn’t have to be realism. Deciding to fiddle with textures and shadows and craters after midnight was not the most brilliant idea ever but I’m happy enough with how it turned out.
It’s a bigger canvas this time: 38 x 46 cm / 15 x 18 inches. Acrylics on canvas.
