Painting an evening or night piece seems so daunting to me. Have you done many over the years?
Really appreciate the rear view, as I think that can be hard to keep proportional...as my last sad attempt could attest!
Thank you for the kind words, Mary!
I did a lot of night scenes when I first started with OP's. The moon seemed easier to capture than a lot of other things.
I really like American Tonalism and tried to copy a few of those masters, with varying degrees of success. This is the first dark landscape I've tried in a while, and definitely the first with rugged, rocky terrain. Not my strong suit, but I like trying!
Amaya - I like that it reminds you of a woodblock print! Must be from the palette. This is my first effort at a nighttime landscape in awhile, but I have done some. Thank you for your comments!
