    I've always loved nocturne paintings and thought it would be fun to do a piece of art based on the moon and the night sky. I tried three times to do this piece but the first two attempts failed miserably when I tried to do them in watercolor. The watercolor was just too hard to control for such amorphous shapes like clouds. So I thought I'd have better luck with colored pencil because I knew I could control the cloud shapes better and I'm glad I did and I'm pleased with the result.

    This is beautiful, the expression, composition, background, attention to values, contrast. it shows true dedication as an artist as well as talent and heart. so well done.


    One of my favorite works. I love the contrast between the lightness of the balloons and the heaviness of the body motion and the boy's gaze.


    The variety of lines, values, and colors keep the viewer coming back. It is also raises the question about the meaning of the flowers the woman is holding. We begin to imagine and want to know more of the story.

    Oh my God , what a lovely and beautiful portrait, Perfect and simpl , use of green colour looks stunning.

    Compositional Perfection

    Love this piece !. Great use of light, depth perception and color. The vertical composition is perfect for the story being told. I also love the way the artist has created the layers of rock from top to bottom leading into the action at hand at the bottom. This is a masterpiece.
