Blue moon – acrylic painting

Blue moon

It is a beautiful and delightful sight to behold the body of the Moon.

      – Galileo Galilei

Music theme: Blue Moon-Ella Fitzgerald

“Blue moon” is the first of six canvases in „Natural phenomena” paintings series. This series of paintings started with the idea to paint beautiful occurrences in the nature, but it turns out that most of the painted scenes are catastrophic (volcano, storm, meteor) or dark (like the moon, aurora borealis, solar eclipse).

It wasn’t my intention at first, but as the theme developed, it became clear that the seduction of mysterious and dark side of Mother Nature is strong.

Creation of painting was simple, without any tricks. Mountings were painted using palette knife.

Below are photos of painting stages, as well as finished painting and details.
