- This piece was constructed based on the drawing above created by my classmate. In the foreground, there is a river surrounded by grass and trees with birds singing on top. The background is much more ambiguous. The yellow circle is taken as a moon while the dark sky surrounds it. The scene clearly takes place at night. Although this analysis is simple, there is more to be taken from the picture. The color of the sky changes this picture entirely. Nighttime can be easily depicted use a dark blue, but this sky is a very dark purple, close to pitch black. The word I chose to describe the sky is "apocalyptic".
