Oil on canvas, 5″ x 7″
The last faint sliver of day, just as it reaches the edge of vanishing.
I started this many months ago but the color choices weren’t looking right and I set it aside. Then today I decided to completely paint over it with new colors. It’s still the same painting though, just different paints and finished details. All of the paints I used in the top layer are from Williamsburg. I used Van Dyke brown, French terre verte, Italian Pompeii red, ultramarine blue, and titanium White. Also there’s generous amounts of a putty medium that I made yesterday and put in a tube. I think all the paint visible here is mixed with around 50% putty.

This is beautiful. 🙂
Gorgeous, and such a tiny scale
You seem to enjoy painting stars. (do you paint under the stars?) How peaceful 🙂
Painting in the dark would probably be hard, but maybe I’ll try plein air stars anyways ^_^
Watching for shooting stars can be fun too. I once saw 9 in about half an hour. 🙂
