Spring fields

I wandered across some nearby fields which are only accessible this time of year. Come summer they will be planted with corn or soya. This was started outdoors, then the wind just got to be too much.

Lesson learned: too much detail in the middle ground attracts unwanted attention. I want to learn how to indicate a bare tree without drawing all the branches.

This was a first sketch in a new sketchbook (Pentallic) — something even more intimidating than a blank piece of paper. In fact, I did this sketch in the back of the book, to try out the paper. It seemed to soak up the paint quickly. But I need to work with it some more.
