Requiem Original Version by Keithspangle Requiem Original Version by Keithspangle
Oil on Canvas
14" X 18"
I was cleaning out my studio and came across this. I had a very blurry photo of this over on my other site amongst the scraps, so I thought I'd put this up. This was the original idea for Requiem.

The planet feels heavier here, which I like. The cosmic forces are keeping it from colliding!

Thank you!  This actually came from an idea that I am thinking of exploring more.

Originally I wanted to do a scene where everything was in shades of black except for the stars and their reflections.  I ended up going off in a different direction which ended up with the other version of Requiem.  I should probably revisit the original idea.

I can imagine that it would look more real with less color, but not more beautiful.  Just a different beautiful. :)

I think stars look great even in good old black and white!

Thank you!  Oddly enough this began as an attempt to do a painting entirely in shades of black.

I always love redoing some of my older works. :D It'd be interesting to see how it might change.

I tend to revisit favorite themes over and over. Often my younger work had more energy but had less technical quality

Maybe it isn't a lack of energy... maybe it is just that you have more control over it. :D

Maybe too much control. I should prop a canvas up against the wall and start throwing paint at it and have some fun.

This takes my breath away! I really feel like I'm there witnessing that magic starry show, only to notice those footprints way later. Wow! That was an excellent addition!

I love all colors you used for the stars, really give a lot of warmth to the image without taking the magical blue night feeling away. :heart: Absolutely a +fav from me!

nice! only critique i have is that the starfield and nebula in the background looks a bit static, and the moon looks a bit too close. good job otherwise, love the reflections in the water, and the colors are nice too :)

Thank you...I did this one to see if this approach would be more effective than the galaxy. It has possibilities on a larger scale, but I decided to go with the galaxy.

Beautiful painting. I like the deep colors very much. The way the planet kind of emerges from the image is amazing, it creates a sort of 3D effect.

Thank you! I want to follow up on this...explore the idea of a black, colorless world with a sky full of stars like you were at the center of the galaxy.
