Full Moon Rising

An artistic impression of moonlight through Winter birches. Started out life as a gouache painting onto a gold painted board, then scanned and worked again in computer to draw out shapes from the shadows and add texture to the moon.

Full Moon RisingFull Moon RisingFull Moon Rising is a mixed media digital illustration inspired by the Carl Sagan quote "We are all made of star stuff". The rhythm of the tree trunks and the patterns mingling between bark and sky are metaphors, symbolic of the energy - the "star stuff" that binds us. Moonlight is the magical illumination that helps to unravel the mystery. I enhanced the fairy tale feel of this artwork with more textural hand drawn layers and a muted palette paying homage to an early influence in the master works of Arthur Rackham.

Mixed media painting inspired by Nature - available here as a Ltd Edition print, signed, titled and numbered, together with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Many of my mixed media images start out life as watercolour / gouache paintings and / or charcoal / pencil drawings and gradually evolve through a variety of digital painting and illustration processes. Because my "originals" vary considerably from the finished printed product, I only ever sell exclusive small run (10's & 20's) Ltd Edition prints of my imagery here - and consider these to be my "finished artwork".

Since I monitor all aspects of the output - in partnership with my local fine art printer - you can be guaranteed of the very highest quality finish, using longevity ink and premium heavyweight paper, as well as a cast iron assurance that no further Ltd Editions will be printed other than the two sizes - medium and large sizes both available here.

I pack carefully rolled, bubble-wrapped, inside large diameter toughened cardboard tubes, to ensure prints reach you in excellent condition.

Please feel free to message me for any further information. I am always happy to discuss my work. I want my work to be enjoyed and there's no greater buzz for an artist than knowing someone loves your work enough to live with it in their home or workplace.

Thanks for looking. Have an inspiring day!

Andrew :-)
