As most of your know, I live on Top of Palomar Mountain, in California. Our Mountain is known for it's Observatory - one of the largest in the world. I am telling you this because I was sitting on my porch the other night and the moon was so large and bright in the sky, it took my breath away. Then a cloud passed in front of the moon, this site was amazing...
Pale Gold Sumi-e watercolor
1) Started off with a Canvas, painted it was Black Gesso.
2) The Oil Pastel are so easy to use, it's just like use a crayon, I drew in my moon with a the White and Light Yellow Oil Pastel. Bending them together with my finger
3) With Blue, Grey and White, I started adding those clouds I seen the night before. Blend the three colors with your finger to get the effect.
4) Stars - I had to add stars - Since we have no outside lights up here, the star are very bright. I got my mini waterbrush (love these brushes) and started adding star with my Pale Gold Sumi-e watercolor.
