Nocturne Season


10/26/21 6:30 a.m.

Last winter I made several predawn nocturne sketches during the darkest weeks of the year. Although the solstice is still a couple of months away, it’s dark for quite a while after I’ve gotten up in the morning. It occurred to me that once we turn the clocks back again on Nov. 7, I won’t have as much predawn time, at least for a while, so it’s a good opportunity now to sketch the darkness.

The easiest things to see from our livingroom window are Greg’s car and the one across the street illuminated by a street light. I forgot to get my book light, but I decided to wing it using ambient light from the kitchen. It felt like an unintentional blind contour!
