Pen and color pencil sketch

Pen and color pencil sketch

I was walking home at dusk when I decided to sit down for a break and try sketching what I saw. This is on Greenland drive in my hometown, Murfreesboro, across from a cemetary (I forget the name of it). I wanted to quickly capture the way the light reflected off of the trees , the road, and other objects as the sun was setting. This sketch took about 30 minutes- I had to hurry because the sun moves fast when it’s setting. At least it felt like it to me.

Sketched with a pen, then colored with prismacolor pencils.
