Every day in May no. 9

Had a little more time today, so I drew part of the view from our kitchen window. This cityscape is quite interesting – the colors in it change from day to day. On an overcast day all the houses look a dull dirty light brown or light red, in spring sunsets the colors explode with the warmth from the sun, showing everything from white to shiny yellow to deep red to forest green… Shadows change all day, sculpting the shapes of the houses and trees. It would be interesting to draw the same view over and over during a sunny day to capture the play of light. Or wait, has that been done already at some point in art history? 🙂
