52Frames Silhouette Week 28

This is a great challenge from 52Frames. I had lots of idea for Silhouette but settled on some photos I took a few years ago of the houses on the other side of the street as the moon was coming up. It works well in the format of my book and is another image that has been waiting for something to be done with it.

I chose acrylics as I am enjoying them and they are easier to get a nice rich dark colours with. The fine lines I actually did with a fineliner pen. I find it really hard to get the paint consistency right to get a nice long thin line and it never works if you go over it.

Happy with this, it captures the feeling on the evening I took it.
