Last week just before the full moon we were camping in the dry side of Washington State. The moon was so bright - the night before it was full. We could walk about without requiring a flashlight to see where we were going.
I've since been playing with drawing/painting moons. Not well, mind you. Just playing around to see what happens. This piece is using water soluble oil pastels. It was too dark for good photos today (darn rain), so this doesn't bring out the color variations. But you get the idea.
I'll keep playing around, and eventually get the look I want.
