When I was browsing through my reference pictures looking for inspiration I found this scene. The picture was taken years ago and I could not exactly find who had taken it, probably my daughter. It was one of a series of snow pictures given to me for inspiration a long time ago, so I can use it as I wish.
The scene is not very far from our house.
We regularly take a walk around the quarter where we live and in the winter - with snow - the most beautiful spot of the walk looks like this.
The lights are the lanterns illuminating the highway close by. There is a screen (to block most of the noise so houses have been built nearby) which is visible in winter, when the trees and bushes are bare and the herbs are sleeping in the soil.
Sunset is early in December and the picture was taken just after the sun had disappeared.
I used some of my Twilight Colours again, combined with a yellow and an orange for the lantern lights.
