I wanted to paint a picture of Earth for Grandpa. Unlike my last painting, which showed lighting from the front, I wanted this painting to show Earth and the moon from the side with half of the dark face showing.
Momma and I searched the internet for just the right photo to give me a reference photo for my painting. This is the photo I chose:
With this photo as a starting point, I added in the moon with the same dark side, with the sun in the distance on the right and lots of red stars.
Thomas and I painted together. Here is a video of Thomas and me painting our pictures. (My picture took longer, so I was just starting the background during the video while Thomas was finishing his up.)
Happy Birthday, Grandpa!
The finished painting:
