Inspired by Atkinson Grimshaw the painter of moonlight. There is something special about a mackerel sky that has different colours created by light refracting in the water vapour of clouds. The moon is directly above the head of one of the faces in the clouds. He can be seen better from the left side in a similar way to the skull in Holbein’s painting of the Ambassadors. We are required to shift our current perspective to see more clearly.
