Pale Moon

Pale Moon, 2018, oil on linen, 30.75 x 46 cm


One of the aims in this painting is to capture a sense of repose, primarily through a soft glow and the lazy movement of the lake. 

Some of the moonlight paintings take a while to do, since few months, and sometimes a year or two, can go by and then I might add a few brushstrokes of colour here and there. It might not seem much, but every small addition to a painting can make a big difference. That's why I like to live with the work for awhile before exhibiting them.
