After Dark



Lately, I'd been thinking of new things to draw, and I realised I've never really tried to represent the night. It's interesting how colours work in a dark room. Figuring this palette out, was massive amounts of fun. You should try it too, if you haven't already!

On a side note, this one's for those innumerous times I've heard you singing "ghum naam hain koi", in the dark Satyam. It's also for the innumerable hours you've stayed up to talk to me.

really nice work! :) I've always had a tough time painting night scenes! Still haven't fully figured out how that palette works.

Thanks!What made it a little easy for me was to first give myself a really dark background, then darker outlines of the scene and then proceed with the colours. Hope this helps! :D

I really like how you did the fabrics in this one, specially the rug on the floor and the padded jacket. Lots of love and admiration coming your way.

Thank you Shalmi! :D The admiration is much appreciated, and the love is doubled and sent back your way!
