Art Journal Sketch: Field and Trees

fieldandtreessketch.jpg

This Field and Trees sketch in my art journal is loosely based on the colors of an Anne Ryan collage.  I used pieces of an old dictionary for the background and a photograph I took last winter as a jumping off point. I left the scene somewhat abstract. I still can't help myself adding details, but I'm hoping to get over that (at least for some of the work I want to do). Oooh, and also, my new favorite thing to do is flick paint from my paintbrush to make the snow!
