Sketching in house #13

This time a very simple composition for this view through a kitchen window. I hope if taken forward to a painting it will show the most striking contrast between inside and out. If I painted this view every day, apart from the summer, when there is constant sun and blue sky, it would be different each time.

Here the inside is darker than outside, as you'd expect, even though the light outside was going. I drew it as storm clouds began to gather over the mountains to the north. 
A few minutes after I finished this drawing, the goatman came with his herd to feed on the fresh green vegetation that has sprung up after the pre-Christmas rains. They come by the house and we took a look at each other by the kitchen doorway. The sky was even heavier by this time.
