Here's a pastel sketch I did of last night's moon rising between a house and a tree in a cloudy sky.

TenthEnemy,

Very well done. The black and white work perfectly here. This is a sketch with perfect composition. I can see why you were compelled to make this sketch. :cool: :rainbow: :bow:

Frank :)

Very impressionistic yet very real! :bow: :bow: :bow:
You could do illustrations for books. Did you say that you just started sketching recently? If so, this is a testament that there are great artists waiting to be discovered!

Keep up the good work!

I like it, Picasso-ish. If that were big enough I'd frame it and hang it on the wall. :jump:

TE,

An outstanding observation of the rising Moon in a thinly clouded sky. The observation has a very eerie feeling to it lent by the reflected lunar light off the clouds and the shadows of the home and tree. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

What an overwhelmingly unexpected response :o, I can't think of anything to say to express my gratitude.

Mark, I started doing sketches in pencil in January last year. I began using pastels a few months ago, inspired by your amazing drawings.

Nice, mood-evoking sketch. Like Carlos, what caught my eye was how well you rendered the moonlight reflecting off the clouds. :)
