Anyone that has ever taught similar classes to mine knows how much prep time there is. I won't bore you, but will say getting ready for that interferes with my fun projects in progress. I have at least added some color to the central area around the sun and the moon faces.
Now I'm moving to the outer edges of the sun rays. I used a Fabrico fabric marker to draw in the dark areas between rays.
Now to add some further movement and dimension through simple shadowing. This transparent rusty shadowing adds a good bit of solar warmth.
Getting Close To A Finish!!!
