Satellite Imaging of an ever Changing Topography

Pretty pleased with the results here.  My aim was to paint a variety of views, as one often sees the Earth illustrated, when seen from outer space.

I've always been really fascinated with how the surface area appears, and then how it's appearance alters as you move closer to the Earth's surface, and then even more dramatically once you reenter the atmosphere.

These paintings here are simply put, my attempts to recreate such satellite imagery, with of course a bit of the abstract flare I like to toss about.

In addition, I wanted to administer a real sense of movement and weather patterns.


  1. I think you achieved what you set out to do. One can see the landmasses and sea under the colored clouds. :) Like looking at thermal images of the earth as well.
