"tis the Season" mixed 9 x 12

I passed this house the other night, and loved its warm sparkly lights against the last blue of dusk.  I experimented with a few different media, drawing in ink, then laying in some 50% gray for the shadows in the house.  I added ink pencils for the blue, added water to enhance them, then used black ink for the silhouettes of the trees and roof, then laid in some pastel for the lights and a few other areas.  Overall, I need to lower all the values even more so the lights can be the stars. I'll try again.  This is my seventy-seventh daily drawing using ink as at least one component.  Thank you for looking, as always.
