Last night, Van and I joined friends at their home on the Salmon River to watch the full moon come up over the Chilkats. I was working on this expecting the moon to come up in this area, but it came up further south. I did capture the color and value of the spruce just before the sun went below the horizon.
This was of the moon after it was up a ways. I painted it on a piece of mat board which is another paper that is too absorbent. Both of these were painted pretty fast. I left the houses out along the tree line.
