iPad drawings

This is the view from my old bedroom at my parents’ house. It’s a fairly typical view of suburbia. A small amount of light can make minor elements more prominent at night.

The drawings uses several layers, each layer holds certain elements and can have their settings like opacity and order (elements on upper layers will obscure those on layers below) altered. The two views were created from the same drawing on my iPad; the daytime drawing was the first, with the nocturnal view created partially from it by adding darker new layers and altering the transparency of existing ones.
