IF: Moon


This is a cropped version from the image below.


This was a quick sketch I did of lifeguard tower #3 at Ocean Beach in San Diego today. I finally made it to one of, the only art stores in the San Diego area (which still baffles me). I bought five pens that represent the color palette I intend to use for a while. Anyway, the sketch was done at 6pm so there was no moon yet-but I started doodling them into the sky anyhow. I figure with the full moon tonight it would be appropriate to finish the piece and send it in. I brought home the sketch deconstructed it a bit, added the beach out of pattern tissue from the 70's and blue gouache to make it midnight.
And there you have my topic of this week 'moon'.

I like the un-cropped version alot more. It breathes more and those red and green lines that swipe across the bottom are beatiful. really cool!

I, too like the uncropped version. I think it would look very nice on my bedroom wall...
