Illustration Friday - Moon 1




Here's a couple of moon images I painted as ATCs a year or so ago.
Both are acrylics, 2 1/2" x 3 1/3".

I don't know what an 'ATC' is but I guess it is something small and to get that much detail on it you HAVE to be talented !

One small brush of paint, one giant leap for the art of painting,,,;-)

And I, too, like the bottom one especially...great work...

An ATC is an Artist's Trading Card. Artists paint or draw (and a lot of artists collage and stamp or even photograph, but I don't) little artworks. Then they post them on line, and trade with one another. The ATC trading group I belong to is linked on my sidebar - it is only for hand painted and hand drawn originals. If you are interested, you can read about Art Cards here.

Really great! Both are wonderful - such detail in a small size! I especially like the one of just the moon - great colors!

Siren Singing said...

I love your brush strokes. I have always wished I could get a good handle on a paint brush but it doesn't like me.

They are both very beautiful.

Loni Edwards said...

Both are excellent illos. And to do such details on an ATC - Wow! Great job!

JC said...

Wow! quite the detail on such a small "canvas". I'm very impressed with both pieces (I love how you painted the astronaut on one, and how you painted the craters on the other). Wonderful job!

dizzyjadey said...

Wonderful painting, especially the second one! Love the detail on the craters.
