#224 At the Pick A Christmas Tree place

At the pick a Christmas Tree place tonight, they had an outdoor fire built into some kind of metal covered pit (the kids loved it).  And I was struck by how bright the fire was on an otherwise dark and cold night.  I wondered if it was possible to convey how bright a color could be using standard web-page colors.  The one thing about most simple drawing programs is that it’s hard to make things brighter than they can really be.  So you have to make the surrounding area really dark. But I trust you can still see the details in the background (like the car and the firewood).

I think this does a decent job at conveying that.
