Day 210: Night Painting

In night-painting, light becomes all important. When you cover the page in dark, the few spots where light leeks through become all important. It's satisfying to make a mess with charcoal, working around the few spots of light. This morning I drew the last image I had from Carr Pond the previous night, as Maggie's darkened silhouette shivered in the water.
Wanting to do more from life, tonight Eli and I went to the old abandoned bridge. It was too dark to make out what colors I was mixing, but here's what I painted. Not from memory, but from experience.

At night, the bodies of water are the main light source.
