Moon Over Water (with #Throwback)

My main aim with this picture was to practice painting back-lit clouds.  Nightscenes are interesting as it seems almost like you have to forget everything you think you know about light and shadow.

It struck me afterwards that this piece was very similar in theme to one of my earliest works, in that the idea was a moon over a lake at night.  The first was painted over 10 years ago, when I first started dabbling.  I think it's a nice testament to how far I've come.
