To be honest the sketch layer is nothing like this painting in progress, two hours of pushing pen so far.

That's why I prefer painting summer landscapes. :D All those branches!

Surely it's a lot of work, but I love the effect of what you're doing with the branches. All those individual crisp strokes add up to something very soft and airy... Great choice of color for the understorey in the line of trees. At this point, your painting reminds of the pen-and-wash experiment you did recently. Looking forward to updates!

Thanks all, domestic time needs attention again at present.
Banna good to see you are back and hope you are comfortable after recent hospitalisation.

I attempted several foreground options but time and interest got me beat on this occassion and I plead guilty I took an easy way out. :o

It's nice, I don't think it needed anything more.

Now it looks like one of those brown ink landscapes of old. I liked the way you cropped it. I liked where you were headed with the original, but this is very nice too.
