Under a waning moon

Really like this Peter

Has a touch of Caspar David Friedrich about it. I like it.

Thanks for the kind comments Heather and Tony. Not familiar with Caspar David Friedrich but will look him up.

Lovely moonlight Peter. I like the delicate way you have painted the moon and the overall palette of this.

Thanks Carole, I didn't want to overdo the moon.

Lovely work Peter, excellent palette

Impressive piece Peter, the sky is particularly good, and I like the moon - a touch of Fred Cuming almost!

Thanks David and Alan. I have to confess the idea for the moon came from watching a Fred Cuming DVD but that is where any similarity ends as I can only watch what Fred does with awe and admiration. No hope of even imitating his incredible talent.

Wonderful. Really love this. This pulls me into my own memory of walking somewhere calm, in the field of Edinburgh, feeling the magical delicate lavender sky. I also love Fred Cuming, a touch of romantic colour palette and sentimental mood! I was just about to get his dvd!

Thanks Yoko, I have two Cuming DVDs 'Atmosphere of landscape' and 'The Art of Fred Cuming RA'. The former shows him painting on location but I find both inspirational although daunting knowing I can never match what he does.
