God, who created the light, called the light "Yom" Day
should have the definitive word on the subject.
so what stubbornness is it to light a candle and go searching for a way to support that Or is night?
(the tractate Pesachim begins with the command to search for chammetz on the 14th with a candle. the mishna uses the word Or, and this page discusses if Or means day or night, going through various biblical verses)
I am trying to do each tractate in a different drawing medium, so each section will have it's own look. I found these sketchbooks with beautiful brown paper, and given the topic of the this page, the black & white, shadows & highlights, seemed fitting for Pesachim.
