20/10/2021- “Big city”

As the night rolls in, the traffic drains out of town. The streets go quiet and the street lights turn on. People settle in their homes, sorted for the night.

A lonely little car is seen snaking through the city, moving slowly along the empty roads until it finds and empty alleyway to park in.

I got a little carried away creating a reference image for this drawing. I used a toy wind-up car and built a makeshift city in my kitchen using condoments from my cupboards. It reminded me so much of imagining playtime as a kid!

The scene looked so interesting once I had composed it that I kept the reference image unchanged. Instead of buildings I drew all the condements exactly as they were. A little kitchen town with a tin car.
