So, continuing on with the Theme of “things silhouetted against a moon”, I’ve done six more starter pieces. I’m doing the moons two different ways, so far. I’m also using an assortment of paper types – 400 lb rough, 140 lb smooth, 140 lb rough.
I thought the 400 lb would be my favorite, but I got a really interesting effect with the slick paper.
I did three by wetting the entire sheet, and throwing color down in the general area of the moon. Once bone dry, I’ll put the background in to define the moon shape.
I did these 2 by only wetting the moon area. I think it’s going to be harder to get the background on these, as I have to be more precise with the edges.
For this last one, I’ve thrown color into what might be the background, and I’ll add the moon after it’s dry.
One of these will have a crow in it, one will be an owl, and one will be a heron. Not sure what the other ones will have.
