On Wednesday we were treated to a really quite spectacular thunderstorm lasting a couple of hours following a very hot day on Tuesday. The lightning was flashing and flickering within the clouds, rarely striking the ground, and the rain was torrential. Prior to the start of the storm I happened to be looking out of the window, wondering when the weather would arrive, when I noticed a group of starlings sitting on the neighbours chimney. By the time I came back with the camera, some of the stuckies had flown so the pots were no longer fully occupied! The sky was an interesting colour too.
This work is a mix of coloured pencil, acrylic paint and pens. A bit more shadowing to go on the chimney pots I think, but otherwise now finished.
