The Man in the Moon - a life size painting of a US astronaut

Here is my new project, following on from the success of the Lunar Australia painting at the St Michael's Art Awards, and the recent forays into abstract astronauts, I am painting a life-size portrait of an astronaut on the moon.

It is an ambitious project, and will likely take hundreds of hours to complete.

I am especially grateful to the team of passionate experts at HC Pro in Horsham, who provided me with the enormous digital prints I am using as a guide for colour and detail. They are works of art unto themselves.

The slideshow will progress as I work on the painting over the next months.
