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.
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.
