Beautiful, detailed reflective moonlight on water. I like the shadow evident even on the black. The person and dog are tiny... but they're there for you to see so clearly. The light on the palms is very good, too. A sense of comfort and 'something more' in the composition and vastness of the sea and horizon. The hint of something at the other side (houses) is nice too. And I think there is good dynamic to the piece. In one word: GREAT.

Charcoal's, yes?

Mai.

The palms were charcoal to get that deep black, the rest was white, black, and blue pastel.

:omfg: I can't believe the beauty of this. This is amazing....I use the word "amazing" for lack of a better word. I wish I was able to do something this beautiful ... I used to go to the beach at night because I loved the way the moon and stars looked down on the waters.. Just the atmosphere of the nighttime there was so relaxing and romantic to me. :heart:

this too is just beautiful! I feel as though maybe the person (and their dog) are hiding trying to sneek a peek at something in nature that is too much for the eye to appreciate...my favorite parts of this are the stars and the reflections! But this all is a lovely lovely piece! ~Tracey

Thanks for the nice comments, I really enjoyed working on this one. It was one of those things which are lazily yet obsessively worked on. I was in the right mood for it.
