Illustration Friday - SKY

This week's Illustration Friday theme is SKY.  I found a great quote by Frederick L. Knowles: 
The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand.
Night Girl was sketched with pencil and colored with Neo-Color crayons.  Look closely at the moon - see how sparkly it is.  A Gelli Roll Sparkle Pen added that fabulous shimmer.  
The sky was painted directly into my art journal with a few pieces of painters tape blocking off a border.  I've started collecting Adirondack Acrylic Paint in the Dabbers which made really fast work of painting the blue (Denim) without any mess or paintbrushes.  The dabber also left the fun textural look of the sky.  Stars were added with flicks of white paint.

Beautiful painting and lovely quote. I've never painted with the dabbers but I think I'll give them a try.

Brilliant quote and an equally amazing painting to accompany..the splatters were a very good idea.

Lovely page - and I so love the quote, but I, too, wonder what she is going to do with it now that she has it.

She is lovely and I like the way she goes off the page. I often wish you could see sparkles better in a photo or scan!
