Venus is shining in the night sky, while her earthly equivalent, a lady in blue, rests in a pastoral scene. She sleeps in a tranquil landscape, lit only by the light of this bright planet and a few other small stars. Happily asleep to dream. The tree radiates above her, representing her blossoming thoughts and desires.

Painted in acrylic washes on wood, using my favourite colours in a very limited palette to suggest the still of the night: Phthalo Blue (Green shade), White, and a touch of Burnt Sienna, plus a lot of definition by 3B graphite. The painting has then been given three coats of Archival Gloss spray. Ready to hang. It is available framed, unglazed, in a professionally made tray-frame in black (just under 12 x 10") Sent by Tracked delivery (Courier) with a Certificate of Authenticity.
