Project LV One – Day 325 – Eclipse

Ann Hathaway

So what was all the fuss about?  Big deal so it went a bit gloomy for a short while – so what?   These are all the things I didn’t think this morning as I witnessed the second partial eclipse of my life.   So much attention in the media is all at the sun but the really interesting stuff was going on away from the sun.  The light started to get a strange greyness to it.  I don’t have the words to adequately describe it as this is the first real time I have examined the effect of an eclipse.  Some people have describe the light as the gloom of dusk but that doesn’t even come close to its effect.  At dusk the sun is gone and so none of its power can be detected whereas even at the height of the eclipse, where I live it was around 85%, the sun still had the power to shine through.

Today also marked my first serious steps to master oil pastels and I have to say I am quietly satisfied with the result.  The image is based on an image I keep coming back to, the digital painting above was made over 2 years ago, and is of the actress Anne Hathaway. For the first time I have taken using oil pastels seriously and lets hope the partnership is fruitful.
