moonlight in the night

by Rebecca
(Hawaii)

This is my painting just on a basic sheet of acrylic painting paper. It did not take me long, no longer than 40 minutes.


Sometimes it can go so fast, and sometimes not. I do not know a lot about painting, it's just a hobby for me but I would like to learn more and continue to practice and get better.

I usually do bright beach and sunset paintings with palm trees so this simpler darker painting did not come as naturally.

Thanks for taking a look and I am always very picky about my paintings and don't like them too much so I'd love to hear what you think.

Feel free to hand out advice to help me learn more too. Thanks!! :)

Response to Anonymous question
by: Rebecca Daniels

Hi I am sorry I did not get back to you right away. I have been very busy with college and just saw the question. I first did the tree with a small brush and added a little bit of water to be able to make the small smooth lines, and then I took a big coarse brush to just lightly tap on the leaves. I think the main thing is to not have too much paint on the brush when trying to add the leaves. Thanks for looking and I just started selling some paintings! I am very excited and if anyone would like to take a look just copy and past the link below!! Thanks, Rebecca

Beautiful
by: Guy Yocom

This is a mesmerizing piece and you have a nice, restrained touch. Yours colors don't shout, they whisper very pleasantly. The shifts in values are very well done.
I wish there were a couple of more features in this painting; less can the be more but to me it calls out for an eye stopper or two.
Can't wait to see more. This is great!

Very Nice!
by: Barb

Rebecca - good job! I love the work on the night sky. Also like that you made the light coming from the left of the painting and it not only shows on the moon but on the tree trunk.

Thank you for sharing! I like your work!
