Winter Moon

Winter Moon, 2016, oil on linen, 36 x 46 cm

A painting based on my viewing of Lake Wendouree at night. Then moon wasn't really in that position, but I incorporated it into the picture based on sketches from life, make believe and the dictates of the composition. It's almost impossible to paint a picture like this from life because this time of day only lasts a few minutes - too light to be really dark, but too dark to be twilight.
