Observation II Study

Up on Every Day Original tomorrow morning! This is a study from an older painting which I recently revisited for an experiment in what could have been.

"When he [Johannes Kepler] found that his long cherished beliefs did not agree with the most precise observations, he accepted the uncomfortable facts, he preferred the hard truth to his dearest illusions. That is the heart of science."
-Carl Sagan

Reference for the background of this piece was collected while visiting the telescope in the 127 year old Ladd Observatory, in Providence RI.
