It’s the 2nd of February and some pagans celebrate Imbolc now. I felt the presence of the Luna Moon Hare and the magical glow of a world that will awaken towards spring.. in a while.. in a long while. Spring here in the north doesn’t start to show until April but still, it will soon be time to prepare seeds and pre-grow plants for the next season.
Although the scene is supposed to have a mystical darkness, I wonder if it went too dark. I’m watching the colour dry and slightly change and it worries me. Imbalance will be easier to see in the morning in daylight. Painting around midnight is pretty terrible despite my brighter than usual lamps that I have for my plants and to help against Seasonal Affective Disorder.
It’s another 20×20 centimeter / 8×8 inches acrylic painting for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
Look at how purdy the palette turned out. The colours are especially clear because of all the water..
..and here is the painting in progress, the early stage where I’m getting a feel for the mood and what wants to appear on the canvas.
