Moon painting

Moon Reflections  8x10  acrylic

I wanted to experiment a little more with the moon and its reflections trying to capture a quiet mood.
 By keeping the shapes big and most of the values close together I was able to accomplish a feeling of peacefulness in the painting.
I used the plein air sketch from the last post as reference and adjusted things from there.

I like how the moon appears to be floating on the clouds.
