Night

Ink and coloured pencil

Everyday matters - draw a night scene.
Well not quite night, but nearly!  This is a view from my window, we are in a narrow valley and I can just see the edge of  a nearby town on the hill above.  It becomes more interesting at night, boring blocks of flats can become elegant villa's in the darkness and the town hall looks like a castle when the street lights illuminate it.

The clouds and light often make amazing skies,  but we also get to see  beautiful starry nights too as there is very little light pollution down our little lane.  Sometimes you feel as if you could just reach out  and touch them!
