Brush pen markers on bristol board.
This is based on a charcoal piece I’d done the week before, and I think it turned out much more interesting than the charcoal. It’s one of the few abstract pieces I’ve done, and I’m really proud of it.
I absolutely love the moon and moonlight, and in this piece I was attempting to capture the feeling of wonder one feels looking up at the moon, hanging low over the mountains. In making this series I became very interested in using concentric circles to show radiating light in the sky, similar to what you see in “Starry Night”. I think my inspiration here is half Van Gogh and half kitschy Southwest graphic designs.
