A couple weeks ago I tried an oil painting session on these two craters. It gets tense. This medium is tough for me to deal with but fun. The story and picture of the painting are at the link below. There is religious content. http://christworksministries.org/crater_craziness

Roland,
Nice work. The Moon is such a beautiful object with many hidden treasures. Glad you were able to capture the craters so well with oil paint.


Ken

Respect, painting is far more difficult than sketching!

Thanks. While more difficult, one thing oil paints permits is better contrast when you want it.
