Untitled (3 Moon craters)

Double-sided cardboard with one moon crater painting on one side and two moon crater paintings on the other.

Side A is an image of the lunar surface and a large moon crater. The background is a thick strip of dark blue night sky. The midground depicts a large moon crater that is likely a 'complex crater' as evidenced by the three large peaks within the crater. The foreground shows more of the lunar surface. The lunar surface and crater are painted with visible brushstrokes and contrasting light and dark colours to create a sense of depth.

Side B shows two separate paintings of moon craters. The top painting shows a moon crater that is positioned slightly off-centre to the left. There are two smaller craters to the left of the larger one. Colours of grey, white, blue, and green were used. The bottom painting depicts the lunar surface and a series of overlapping craters. There are a series of small black dots positioned around the craters. The entire image is painted with grey, green, blue, and black.

Produced to be used as teaching aids at the New Plymouth Astronomical Society.
