Info by Greg Martin:Saturn's largest satellite, Titan is the only
moon with an appreciable atmosphere. Qiute
appreciable, actually... on its recent visit it took
two and a half hours for the Huygens probe to
sink through the dense air to the surface. Were
we to take a similar journey we would quickly
lose sight of space, catching only glimpses of
the ringet giant Titan orbits before becoming
lost in an obscuring fog of nitrogen and methane.
My third piece for ETP. Mostly a cloud work but somehow I knew from the start that it'll look good. Colors are warmer than on any other ETP pieces so far - due to nice brown/orange color of Titan. The most challenging part of the picture was to paint clouds enough hazy to capture the Titan's true nature but still enough obvious to look like clouds and not just like haze.
