Yesterday and today I enjoyed seeing the crescent moon and Venus, the morning star, outside my window. This afternoon I painted a background using various blues and turquoise paints, layered one over the other. I sprayed some of the layers with water and dabbed some paint away with a tissue. I gave it all a sprinkle of fairy dust. I drew a simple tree outline and painted it with brown/black, added the moon and star with my white Sigma pen and a few highlights to the tree. So this is the view from my window, for Art Journal Journey, through my window, and for Moo Mania and More, landscape
This is a lady I sketched recently at the ice parlour when drinking my coffee, she had such lovely eyes, a lot nicer than in my sketch. I used gelatos, pastel chalks and gel-pens. and I am linking to Kim Dellow's Friday face and our challenge 49 Faces.
If I have counted rightly this should be face 22.
This was the photo from yesterday which inspired my painting:
I couldn't sleep in the night and went walking along the Rhine, and the sky was clear, full of stars, and the Milky Way was visible - just beautiful.
Today the sliver of moon was even thinner:
I love watching the morning sky - as you might just have noticed,
but some days I would like to be able to sleep a bit longer!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and hanks a lot for coming by!
