I have been somewhat neglectful of this blog, mostly because I am taking an online art class that is using up most of my art time and computer time. But the other day I saw something that inspired me to do this challenge (and I admit I do enjoy these challenges). As the streetlights in our neighborhood wear out, the old round lights are being replaced by these newer ones. Not only are they more energy efficient, they contribute less to light pollution. There is something futuristic about the shape of them, every time I look at them, I am reminded of the Terminator movies. They look vaguely menacing. Their flat tops, though, are a perfect perch for two of the most enormous crows I have ever seen. This one landed and settled looking exactly like a monarch surveying his domain.
This is watercolor paint and Pentel Brush pen in my Aquabee sketchbook.
