Back to work

Chemelot
Back to work again (BTW: best wishes for the new year everyone!).
As I arrive and leave in the dark, I can only make drawings near my working place. And that is a chemical plant in Geleen, the Netherlands.
I made this view from the parking lot, sitting in my car and listening to the new Muse album.
Actually, I sat there for two successive evenings, yesterday evening the light disappeared way too fast to finish the drawing. I was lucky the same parking place was available today, so I could finish it.

This is impressive Rene, almost like a scene out of a science fiction movie!

Thanks Murray, that must have been a post apocalyptic movie...

This is the subject I haven't done and would like to try drawing. What a great scale!

Wonderfully eerie--great sketch!

Thanks Kumi, I know it's difficult to find a proper location, most chemical plants are far from the roads for security reasons.
Thanks Virginia, more like dreary.
