Moonrise and the Mountains

Moonrise and the Mountains

by Hayley Boyle


watercolor, Faber-Castell 1.5 and SB pens


Methods: wet-in-wet wash, gradient and color blending, line drawing, crosshatching


Inspiration: I've always enjoyed capturing how surreal the world around us can feel. I love the free-flowing qualities of watercolors, and how they give me the ability to paint those feelings on paper. I sometimes have to catch my breath in moments where the sun is setting, the moon is rising, and the mountains make me feel small amidst the universe, but in the best possible way.
