Tree by Moonlight

There’s something magical about moonlight especially the way it illuminates this tree as the fog drifts about. I don’t paint many night time scenes and wanted to give moonlight a try and really liked the way the moon seemed to bring out the soft and subtle greens, yellows, pinks and mauve’s in the tree foliage. I used my usual Ludwig, Unison and Girault pastels on Pastelmat.
