dusk. by nicholaskole dusk. by nicholaskole
The yellow house felt like remembering.

Another little painting- bringing things back from my rides.
Something about dim places when the sky is still light-
Keeping things simple, finding rest when I do.

Thanks for watching- I'm glad you're here

You are officially my favorite commenter for noticing that- I've been obsessed with that series of paintings for a long time :)

I love it. It reminds me of living down in the country and seeing ghostly things between the trees.

Thanks :)
It's loosely based on this particular house I biked by a lot in the summer- it was always so beautiful and mysterious...and when this time of day hit it just right...mmf

That sounds fabulous. That reminds me of these trees that were a couple of miles outside my hometown. They were abandoned and there were trees and moss growing through the windows and around the property. They were amazing.

:) yeah- it's funny, I think that's kind of where this came from. This time of day always makes me feel just a little bit like a kid in a story.

Goodness, absolutely love the nuance of this. I feel like I'm seeing more than you've actually drawn, which is an incredibly neat thing for you to be able to do. There's such mystery glowing out from the house in the dusk.

I always see stories when I look at pictures, and there's such a tale hiding within the shadows of this particular shot that I had to tell you how much I appreciated it.

You're quite welcome - the least I can do when I enjoy watching the art you produce so much.

Your style suits dusk. I can't put my finger on why, but I've though that since I saw that fan art of Luca you did yonks ago.

No problem :)

I know, I've been meaning to do the same. I love Der-Shing's work, I hope she manages to get some free time for herself soon. I guess until then, fanart pick-me-ups will have to suffice!

Plus Luca, who can't love drawing 'dem sideburns

This has such a beautiful feel to it. I love looking around when I'm on the bus on my way home from work, this picture reminds me of some of the beautiful moments you can have when you take the time to really look.
