A painting of Exoplanet western horizon view. A planet with the same directional rotation of our planet earth, so West and East relatively are the same.
The planet is habitat by intelligent being that are no different than us, and you can see their impact on the landscape and the sky in this painting too.
A small town that is part of a bigger civilization that inhabit the Exoplanet on this binary star system. The smaller star is not much different than the bigger star in size and class, the difference is just the distance. In this binary system, there are seasons where the day is so bright , beings living there had to be in the shadow constantly, and other time of the year, it feels like in a constant twilight for months due to the fact the planet can go far away from the focus of the orbit of the binary system and makes the stars further away. The civilization had to to face many obstacles to over come those natural challenges and insure their surviving.
The painting took more than 10 hours to finish, and maybe triple that time just staring and analyzing it.
The art work is heavily influenced by the places I usually hike near by my home on a regular basis, and where I observe the Sunset before I start stargazing.
More Exoplanet paintings will be featured soon. A set/sets of paintings might be done as well.
So until then…
