Cosmonaut Aleksey Leonov by soma Cosmonaut Aleksey Leonov by soma
Aleksey Leonov, the first human to walk in space, on March 18, 1965.




This was painted on a 2' x 5' canvas, and with the size I could not capture enough detail with one shot. Taking multiple shots and stitching them together was the only alternative, so the color representation is not 100% accurate, although it is as close as I can make it.

As I told you before, I love this.

Your use of shading and the blending you've done is TERRIFIC.

Thank you! It was the first time I had picked up a brush and paints in several years. I didn't realize how much I missed it.
