The Nights are Drawing In

I was asked to create a piece on the theme of Time for the debut exhibition of Up and Coming Art.

Provoked by the onset of Autumn, I took my inspiration straight from my surroundings. As the nights get darker and colder, the phrase is repeated without fail: 'The nights are drawing in'. Sometimes with a chill, or perhaps with excitement and a certain relish, depending on how the speaker feels about the darkening days.

I tried to visualise this old saying of the nights becoming increasingly darker with the swoop of black, the swirling of starlings past my window, the changing and transition of a season. I wanted to create an restless atmosphere and a mood of change.

Made with watercolour, pen and digitial. Available as a limited edition giclee print of 50. Contact me for more details.
