Evening Gloom by Hobbes-Maxwell Evening Gloom by Hobbes-Maxwell
What a surreal evening. I love gloomy weather, even at night when the sky turns that dirty yellow and the city seems wrapped in a blanket of dim haze. A few days ago I was taking a smoke break in my back yard and the jazz station (yeah I actually have one of those bitchin’ tombstone radios too, shut up i think it’s awesome…) was playing this crazy live studio jam session with an artist (who’s name escapes me) that was using the wah-wah’s from an old jimi hendrix song as sampling to play his jazz to. extremely surreal.

So yeah, crazy jazz floating up through the smoke, a drink in hand and the gloomy night wrapped around me, I really just wanted to try and snag the moment.

Damn, that's a lot of depth using a very minimal pallette. Kudos, you pulled it off perfectly.

I think you captured it just right.  I love the atmosphere of this.  At first I thought it was more creepy, but the moment I saw "jazz" in the description, I immediately thought Harlem Nocturne www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfAv8y…

Can't decide if favorite part is power lines or glow from radio.  Regardless, awesome.  Thanks for sharing it!

I wasn't prepared for this! You should really do a dark rainy drawing/painting, it would be full of all the emotions. (Like this one!)

I'm gonna agree with traveler60 on this. This is such a moody pic, but its still pretty laid back. The little snippet of inspiration backstory was tasty.

The scene you described plus the image is perfect. For some reason, I think nights like those are good for a game of pool as well.
