Daily Sketch #66

Have you noticed how the days get shorter as the weather gets colder? 

Winter begins on the shortest day and longest night of the year. Cold winter air is dry and clear, so you can see more stars in the sky at night in the winter. 

Look out your window or step outside on a clear night. What do you see? Do you see stars? Do you see planets or constellations? 

If you look at different times or on more than one night, do you notice how they move across the sky? Can you observe the different phases of the moon?

How would you draw the night sky? What if you started with a dark background, and drew on top of it with lighter colors?
