Twilight Moonrise

© Robin Edmundson, 'Twilight Moonrise', watercolor, 14 x 10 inches.
Framed & matted to 16 x 20 inches.  $375

We've been doing a lot of work on the house and the work doesn't stop just because the sun goes down.   One evening, as the twilight was gathering, I looked up out of the hole where I was helping dig a crawlspace and saw the Beaver moon rising - the sky still light enough to show a bit of color where the field grasses and brush were silhouetted against the moon.

It was a nice way to take a break from the work and I spent some quiet time just watching.

And then I spent a few weeks playing with color and texture trying to capture the moment.  It is likely I will revisit this composition a few times, but I love the leaves and twigs over the face of the moon in this one.
