Tokyo evening sketch

I made these two sketches in one hour before I headed for my first yearend party of this year.

This one I drew on the street. It was very cold and the paint didn't dry well.

Then I found a cafe and had a seat where I was able to see almost same street view that I have drawn, and this time I could enjoy warmth of the room with hot coffee.

Love the blues. Easier to draw/paint when you're warm isn't it? Coffee never hurts either.

Lovely both.

I think the first one shows how cold you were! They are both quite wonderfully done!

Like many of you mentioned, my results were surely influenced by each state. In the cold, my fingers won't move as I want, and need to strive to find solution or just finish a little earlier stage and that way helps preventing overwork as a result.., while in the warmth I have more freedom and choice both mentally and physically. Thanks for your comments!
Happy holidays, seasons greetings,or Merry Christmas!
