Pigeons Homing, Twenty Minute Sketch

A pigeon has built her nest in my house, and its so lovely to see her every time I go out. I did this sketch last night with a black dot pen, then I used a black sketch-pen to create the blackness of nighttime. The soft glow of the bulb was done using dry pastel. 

I did it in twenty minutes, which explains the rather crude strokes. I'm planning to make a more detailed and delicate watercolor based on this sketch sometime soon.
