Plein Air Broadstroke

Hi, all.

I've been working to learn the broadstroke technique. This is the closest I've come so far, I think. I guess this technique has long been out of favor, as most seem to be striving for photo-realism. Still, it appeals to me.

I'm curious if anyone has any comments or opinions one way or the other.

This was in a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Stillman & Birn Zeta Series sketchbook. I know it's an affectation, but I have a collection of vintage (some from the 1950's) advertising mechanical pencils I enjoy using to sketch. I use vintage clay H, HB, 2B and 4B leads from Legendary Lead Company.

Any constructive criticism or thoughts on broadstroke would be appreciated.

Thanks for looking!

I like this drawing but I wish it was done much bigger.
