White wildflower field and fence
I found a photo I thought I'd give a quick practice sketch. It was mostly green with spots of brown fencing -- just the kind of scene I find in NC .... and a definite challenge!
I tried to give the scene a 'spring/summer' green look -- to keep it loose and sketch it in under an hour to try to stop fiddling so much with my attempts.
There are things about this I like and things I feel it lacks ...
* I like the soft feel and the contrast of the brown posts
* I'm not at all sure about the foreground
* And I"m not sure there is ENOUGH contrasts ...
* And I'm hazy about the color temperatures working here ...
All in all, though, -- a really good exercise in a challenging color.
