Not exactly night, but sunset in the desert, night not far behind. We were dropped off by the driver on top of a high dune, in the teeth of a gale, sand stinging our faces, and told to “Stay here and watch the sunset!” Dave chose to walk off into the distance and attempted to climb the dune in the picture. I wanted to put his ant-like figure in to give an idea of scale, but was afraid of doing something ridiculous.  As it was, plenty of things went wrong, and I ended up brushing dry paint over the surface of the paper to try to rescue it.

Quick sketch the next morning
