What do you do when you have a difficult day? You pull out your sketchbook and make it go away!
You let your mind wander about the things it wants to paint, taking you far from those that cause you stress. You find peace by letting your emotions and feelings speak through your art.

Here is how you can paint the easy and beautiful Red Moon that was done by Priyanka on 180 GSM Menorah sketchbook.
First make an outline for the moon in the size that you have in mind. Won't the red moon look stunning in the night sky? Let's paint the background black with acrylic paint.
Covering the borders of the page with masking tape will help you paint evenly within a grid.
Base colors :
As this is going to be a red moon, let's choose pastel pink as the base color. To enhance and make it brighter, we can highlight the surface of the moon with a rusty red paint using a flat brush.
Adding some extra details will make your painting more realistic. Add some strokes of white acrylic paint on the moon's surface. This will make it look like the moon is gleaming.
Time to use our favorite technique! Hold another paint brush over the black surface and gently tap it with the paint brush that has white paint. You will get a minute paint splatter that will make your night sky, starry and stunning.
Peel off the masking tape and let your painting dry. The queen of the night will sweep you off your feet! Unleash your creative genius by making series of paintings on your sketchbook like for Christmas, phases of the moon, sunsets, shapes of clouds etc. Enjoy the joy of painting with Menorah sketchbooks!
