Colored Pencil on Ampersand Pastel Board
8 x 10"
Because it is now getting dark just about the time I am waking up and because it is flipping cold out already and because I usually detest being even slightly chilly, I almost hated to finish this drawing. It was at least keeping my mind in a warm place for a while.
I snapped my reference photo for this in July while in Hilton Head. If I recall correctly, it was about 9:30 p.m. and still around 90 degrees. I most assuredly had spent an entire day in the sun.
If you, too, are generally averse to short days and goose bumps, I hope this piece warms you up a bit. However, if you are lucky enough to already be living somewhere fabulous and temperate all year long, please do not send me a note to tell me about it unless it includes an invitation to be your houseguest for a month or two. You can make my flight reservations for right after the Holidays.
