Last week I had my Senior artists create Trick or Treat Street Scenes. We drew simple houses along a street, colored heavily with oil pastel, added a big moon in the sky and went over all with black watercolor paint. The results were terrific.
Dark Street was my result. I think the watercolor I used was too intense - it soaked the paper, but I do think I succeeded in creating a night scene. There is much I like about this image, and there was more time to play, so I continued to work with it - this time in Photoshop.
The second variation is called Rain. I just added some texture to the background and rebalanced the color and light. I love the things that can happen with digital tools.
Making art was a wonderful way to enjoy my dark and rainy day.
