Moonlight over the Great Tor

img_3277 copy

This is a bit different for me – a nocturne of Three Cliffs Bay, Gower, looking towards the Great Tor. I painted it in one hit today, and it’s still wet. I need to take another photograph when it’s dry.

    Beautiful work, Les.

  2. Nice painting, I never think of doing one in moonlight, probably because its so hard to adjust my camera to the dark conditions of night. A full moon, and a tripod definitely help.

    Thanks Shawn. I didn’t paint this from a photograph. It’s made up. I know the profile of the cliffs well and they’re painted from memory. My intention was to paint the sun breaking through the clouds, but I worked on a dark ground of ultramarine mixed with burnt umber, and it sort of developed into a night time picture!
