How about being an invisible moth, surrounded by your invisible world, and gliding over a cityscape during the deep night? How would you reflect that nightscape inside of you? Would it be bright and shiny, or dark and foggy? Chaotic and noisy, or calm and quiet?
For me? It would be both. Bright and shiny from the outside, dark and foggy from the inside. Chaotic and noisy when you are down there, immersed in the city life; calm and quiet, when you are just a night moth and you are gliding over the city from above the sky. And, wherever you fly on, the noisy city becomes silent, almost motionless and stuck in an infinite present.
This watercolor was realized a few weeks ago, on an A4 paper. I used colored pencils and markers for the details. I took a common Luna moth as a reference for the silhouette of this painting, which would embed a modern cityscape on its inside. I am sort of new to painting cities or any modern-looking view, as I usually prefer uncontaminated nature and fantasy scapes. This time, I just wanted to step out of my “comfort zone” and try something new and unusual.
