'Snow Moon'... February 27, 2010
'Snow Moon' - oil on linen, 30x40 © Marc R. Hanson '10
This is a painting that I painted last week after a photo taken on February 27th of this year, a 99% moon, and a study painted on site last Saturday March 6th. I painted the study knowing that I was going to do the larger piece, and that it would be of a different sky. On March 6th there wasn't a full moon but the study gave me information about the scene that was needed, and that the photo did not provide. In this larger version I wanted a larger open sense of space than what I painted on the location study.
Some close ups...
This has been posted earlier today too, but for reference here it is again...
