I am an artist and painter from Germany and mainly paint the moon in shades of indigo. Why? As probably many of you, I have always admired the beauty of the moon and been hugely inspired by it.
Mahatma Gandhi put it beautifully: “When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.” One day I decided to paint the moon and create dreamy little scenes with those paintings.
Now I am into painting the moon more and more abstract and monochromatic. Indigo as a color has such depth and I love to watch the pigment spread across the page, as I lose control of where the color goes and become a spectator of the process, once the color is placed on the wet paper. One could call it adventure painting.
