This is very close to home, just south of Silverton Road on Cordon Road heading south. The scene is typical for late November with trees silhouetted against a spectacular backlight sky.

I drew this with ink in my sketchbook. It’s fun to smear water and ink around first with my finger to get the sky and road and then after that is dry to add detail with pen and ink. I used a combination of brush pen, fountain pen, and gel pen and a bit of white marker for the two lines on the road.
