For my first meet-up with the urban sketchers gang, I also started on another drawing, which I didn’t have time to finish that day. Using a reference picture I finished it the next day at home:
I saw another interesting tree next to a street lamp and thought it’d make a nice composition. For some reason the street lamp makes me think of Narnia, one of my childhood favourites.
This picture turned out a bit better, I think. Probably because I was a little more warmed up, but mostly because there’s a bit more background. I’m really happy with the shadowing and textures, particularly with the street lamp.
