This is the first painting for my first Triptych. It was also my first experiment with varying degrees of sky colours across a moonlit starry night. From there I realized I could expand on it on either sides to give the piece a narrative as I’ve always believe pictures should do more than capture or depict a moment… They should also tell stories. The next part was Mythical, and the last was Technological. Notice it’s Technological that’s being destroyed by space debris as everything else remains unscathed.
