AEDM 2009 day 8: London sunset

This week in London we saw a fabulous sunset. We were riding west in the front seats on the top level of one of those red double-decker buses, and the Christmas lights strung across the streets were coming on above our heads as the sun went down.

I’m hoping to capture just a tiny bit of that gorgeous moment in this little painting. This is it after the first layer of gouache; I’ll let it dry and then work on it some more.
