Candlelight in a darkening yard. Summer begins to begin. Do I hear thunder? Baseball fireworks.
This was drawn and painted outside in near darkness, by the light of this candle and three others nearby. The pen I chose in the dark turned out to be brown, rather than the black I imagined, but I couldn't tell until I began to brush water with watercolor crayon over the drawing. (At that point I figured it out, because my brown pen is not quite as waterproof as my black one!) Interesting to see how the colors changed when I brought the picture inside to different light.
