For years I’ve been wanting to create something based on this view of Christchurch taken from the Port Hills and now I’m finally getting around to it. I made a couple of little changes to the original photo because a not-quite-full moon just seemed a little sad.
This sketch is the reference for an acrylic painting that I’ll post for next week’s Shoot it, Sketch it.

Interesting how the image goes from emphasizing the city (the photos) to emphasizing the moon (the sketch) … or that’s how I see it. That happens even though the sketched city is definitely more specifically ‘something’.
: ) there’s even more emphasis on the moon in the painting (which I’ll post next Monday)…
Tonight is a full moon, and a blue moon too!
