40 years ago man first walked on the Moon, holy cow! I still find it amazing that people disbelieve it actually happened and as the years pass by it seems to be proof for those people that it couldn't have happened. I couldn't begin to go into all the arguments about it happening or not but I firmly believe it happened and if you spend even a small amount of time reading about the whole space race of the fifties and sixties you'll find it pretty hard to doubt it too.
I wasn't alive for that historic moment when Lunar Module 'Eagle' landed at Tranquility Base or when Mission Commander Neil Armstrong descended down the ladder and said those words (on this very day 40 years ago) that everybody knows but I'll be doing my best to be around in ten or so years when the American rocket Ares returns to our neighbour or maybe it'll be the Russians or the Chinese. I guess you could say that the space race is back on again!
This is my second attempt at a traditionally painted illustration and again it's done with acrylic inks and also normal acrylic paints. I hunted out my acrylics and discovered that the majority had dried out and where useless so that trip to the art shop is really calling out to me now. I have a busy week in front me so I don't think I'll manage to continue my painting education for next week but you never know.
