    I've always loved nocturne paintings and thought it would be fun to do a piece of art based on the moon and the night sky. I tried three times to do this piece but the first two attempts failed miserably when I tried to do them in watercolor. The watercolor was just too hard to control for such amorphous shapes like clouds. So I thought I'd have better luck with colored pencil because I knew I could control the cloud shapes better and I'm glad I did and I'm pleased with the result.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
