Ancient Histoty Revisited

This is one of only a few paintings I have done without the use of stenciling. It is painted free-hand as an experiment in blending gouache in black and white. The painting was originally meant to be hung vertically since I wanted to simulate the lunar view as seem from an approaching satellite. The view was more "real" to me if considered this way (rather than as shown in this landscape orientation) and it was in fact very similar to one the Apollo astronauts experienced on lunar approach. Fore sake of conventional viewing, I've re-oriented the image in a more "normal" perspective.
