I hadn’t realised we had a full moon till I suddenly noticed how bright the night seemed to be. This moon was fabulous and I wondered if it was possible to paint all those subtle darks.
I knew I couldn’t paint at night so did a reference pic which of course could not show much except where the reflections the moon and the monastery were.
Here is where my artistic interpretation took charge, and I decided this is what I saw. I suspect the tones were a lot closer but I didn’t think it would work if it was too dark. Who knows. I was happy anyway.

Decided to try Dean’s suggestion and see what comes out of cropping the Moon painting in other ways. MMmm there are some good portions to move in on actually, in fact I’ve only put up the 3 as some are very similar or didn’t work.
I shall let you decide. The top one is the whole painting. A bit of fun doing this anyway.
