#49 Stumps2

I spent a lot of time trying to get the sky & the bush in the front. None of it looked right. Then Kate said “I love that!” when I was back to the skyline layer. It is the view at Mt. Lyford from just near our house. There is a deep dark valley between us & those trees. I will do more & capture that if I can.

Sketches, unlike paintings do not usually cover the whole surface. The underlying surface is integral to the image. Having said that, some painterly sketches follow that do cover the available space.

Later

I have given this image less height and printed it in A3+ in “landscape” – does the thing more justice. I will go with the larger prints.
