The sketch is so rough that I almost didn’t include it.  It is obvious that I did most of my planning by reacting to what I was putting on the canvas.  The sketch gave me a sense of what composition I wanted and how it would be lighter on one side than the other, but I really wanted to have an abstract, playful response to a grouping of trees and didn’t have much patience to put planning into this particular sketch.
