Princess Luna Painting

Our first Princess Luna Painting!  We started this in December (12/9 to be exact), when we painted the background.  It is sometimes quite slow when painting with a 4 yo!  We did little bits of this throughout the last 2 months, finally finishing the painting and then putting on the gems and taking photos.  This is probably our larges cardboard canvas yet, it is 3 and a half feet across!  The 4 yo painted all of the large parts - mane, coat, wings.  I helped out with the details like the eyes and then went back over some of the edges.  She painted the background completely by herself, it was actually somewhat sad to paint over it.

Luna Pre 001 by AquilaTEagle Close up of the background, freshly painted.  I love how the paint catches the light, if anyone wants a hires version of this, just let me know!
Luna Pre 002 by AquilaTEagle The whole cardboard canvas with the outlines before she started painting it.
Luna Pre 003 by AquilaTEagle After she painted the mane and the whites.

We have slowly made our way to Season 7, and in December we watched the "Royal Problem" episode, which inspired this painting.  

Feel free to use this in anyway you like, just credit us.

This is very beautiful. How did you do her mane?

The outer parts we diluted the paint with water, so it was semi-transparent.  The inner is regular acrylic paint.  Then we put little gems over top :)

Princess of the Night! My favorite secondary pony and out of the two ruling sisters of Equestria (not that I don't like Celestia...I just like her younger sister more)!
