Night Sketcher

Coloured pencil on black paper - Vivien Blackburn
14.5 x 19.5 cms

I really can't call this beautiful nocturne from Vivien a postcard.  It's a painting and it absolutely delights me.  It has some of the magic of Van Gogh but is distinctly and beautifully Vivien Blackburn.  
I'm off to buy a frame!

It also has the magic of having finished the shopping just before everything closes Christmas Eve. Who knew a picture of a lone figure on a black background could have such a wonderful warm glow!

Beautiful night scene, the lights really pop and shimmer - and great to see the bigger version with all Vivien's expressive marks - well worth a frame!

A great variety of cards from Vivien - I must admit to being surprised that it was done in pencil. Very atmospheric as are all her cards.

Very cool. I love the unique view. It's amazing how these fine art pieces can just be sent through the mail.
