Divided Light


1/9/21 Through our livingroom window

Before sunrise, I could see thick fog blanketing our neighborhood. By mid-morning, the sun was trying hard to burn through, and I knew it would probably succeed by noon, so I grabbed my sketchbook and a couple of pencils. At first, I was going to draw a straightforward view that I’ve sketched several times in fog previously, both in darkness and in light. As I was planning the composition, though, I remembered last week’s USk Talks Challenge: Sketch through a window and include the frame as part of the composition. Our livingroom’s divided-light window was exactly what I needed. (It was 35 degrees as I sketched. I was happy to be inside this window and not out.)

  1. Smart move to sketch from inside. I like the framed window idea. Nicely done!
