Dark February

The 2018 theme is "Skies" and that includes the dreary ones as well as the colorful or cloud-decked. The weather has been rainy and dark for a few days and I don't mind at all, I find that rainy weather improves my mood and calms me down. In this little sketch I tried to match the color of the solid overcast in late afternoon, blending with colored pencils. Within a few minutes the light in this scene (not here on the screen, outside) will turn purplish blue. These are Nimbostratus clouds, for those cloudspotters among my blogfolks.

Colored pencil and tech pen on sketchbook page, 7 1/2" x 2 1/2", February 10, 2018.

I like this one a lot. Peaceful, and I like long pictures of trees and skies.
