Day 55
I set out at 4.15pm but got waylaid at my parents' house and then 'said "no"' to too many sketching possibilities (including a lovely assortment of shoes outside the yellow door of the mosque - mistake) so getting caught by darkness again. In this view, I thought I saw a smooth transition from night ink, through blue to golden yellow, with no green in between - how can this be managed? - I don't know. Color at night is very confusing. If I paint the colours as I identify them, nothing comes dark enough, but if I add something dark, then it all goes muddy. I'll have to find some examples to study because I would like to be able to do it. And we've already had the shortest day. 6 km

Amazing that we're both on the same journey and over here we've just had our longest day. I think you have the short straw at the moment, I'm just hoping you'll be there to support me when I have to cope with short days, cold etc. This is a gorgeous picture. You are very creaive in finding what and how to illustrate your walks.
