with a fairly simple picture you have developed a lot of interest.

Yes...Yes, that's it! Moonlight provides such a mysterious atmosphere. Works very well. the bottom part is a little light for my taste but that's just an opinion. good subject, good work.

I like the upper part of the painting --the clouds, moonlight and tree are luminous and radiant. I also like the rhythmn of the painting.

The objects in the lower part are I think too colorful for moonlight. They would look much grayer and more subdued. As is, they look as if they're in sunlight.

A lovely painting JV - One's eye is drawn from the buildings to the moonlit clouds as if one were really looking way up into the sky.

thank you all for your kind words. i started off with the lower half of the painting being darker but it kinda looked sad. should i always follow nature when painting outdoor scenes? my art teacher says it is ok to break rules.

very pretty sky patterns

could you put some of these on the ground?
perhaps as shadows
