Super Moon of December 2016



On December 13, last of the three Super Full Moon of 2016 occurred. According to Indian astrology, the area of the sky lit by this moon is known as Mrigashirsha (meaning: deer's head) located in the constellation of Orion. I particularly enjoy illustrating astrnomical phenomenon, especially those relating to the Moon. I did a quick illustration of this one using vinyl chalkboard and Prisma Neo pastels. I started simply with a bright full moon and the trees cast in dark silhouette but when it seemed incomplete I added the deer behind the Moon. Somehow, the deer seemed to add to our knowledge of this super Moon. Maybe it is just my fancy.

Thanks for visiting.
