An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when one celestial object moves into the shadow of another. When an eclipse occurs within a stellar system, such as the Solar System, it forms a type of syzygy—the alignment of three or more celestial bodies in the same gravitational system along a straight line.
The term eclipse is most often used to describe either a solar eclipse, when the Moon's shadow crosses the Earth's surface, or a lunar eclipse, when the Moon moves into the shadow of Earth. However, it can also refer to such events beyond the Earth-Moon system: for example, a planet moving into the shadow cast by one of its moons, a moon passing into the shadow cast by its host planet, or a moon passing into the shadow of another moon. A binary star system can also produce eclipses if the plane of their orbit intersects the position of the observer.
For me an eclipse is the absence of an inner image with color and energy eminating from behind.
Playing with color combinations is another passion of mine. The Eclipses are best viewed in a group. As your eye moves from one to another each pop in and out of focus due to color juxtapositions. In art school my pals and I called this play of color, “waka waka”.
These drawings were made on archival paper with prismacolor pastels.
Keep in mind that each computer monitor is different, so the colors you see may not be the true drawing colors.
All of these drawings can be made into a Giclee print or a ready to hang printed canvas.
