When I was painting "Spirit Of The Falls" I realised that I wanted to paint a moonlit sky with a lot more cloud in it so I resolved to paint "Moonlight" next. I needed to keep the sky fairly simple to contrast with the busy landscape in "Spirit Of The falls" and I didn't want to lose the sweep of the moonlit cloud as it was very much part of the composition structure. "Moonlight" will be very simple, a moonlit sky `a la Atkinson Grimshaw behind a figure sitting on a rocky promontory; a blue/green bright sky with the foreground in middle to dark value saturated colour based around red/oranges. There will be a small moonlit river landscape in the bottom left corner. Stage one was painted in using a rag with a mix of Burnt Sienna and a touch of Dioxazine Purple thinned with turpentine and Liquin. Stage two is a basic colour block-in based on the chosen blue/green - red/orange complementary axis.
