Through this blog, I am joining Julie Oakley and others around the world, in a daily excursion, by foot or bike, stopping along the way to do a sketch.
Nice contrasting shapes.Hey, this is not Janet's window is it? Ha ha.W.
I love your night drawing, it has such a soft and evocative feel, and just a little bit naughty, tit bits of some one elses life.
These remind me of when my daughter was just a child (she's 28 now). We, my daughter, myself and two of my girl friends used to drive around Monterey, Ca. and look in the windows of the houses along the streets (the ones that had no curtains and thier lights on, we drove by, didn't get out and actually peek in the windows. Whew! we were sounding like a bunch of peepettes!) and make up stories about the lives of the folks inside.
There's a fascination about windows, doorways, high fences, locked gates. I occasionally write stories of secrets behind those high fences, especially in the 'elite' suburb with very old houses! A walking pace is best rather than rushing by in a car. There's so much interesting detail in the gardens and old houses that you don't get in the mushrooming boxes in the newer suburbs.W.
