Trees in Arkansas

This view is from the wooden bridge that connects the road and parking area with the cabin. I sat on the bridge and sketched the view up the creek to more big rocks in the distance.


I started to feel like I was developing a sketching vocabulary for the main elements of the landscape: vertical lines for trees and close vertical lines for trees in the distance; bits of texture for fallen leaves; horizontal lines for big rocks. I'd love to see how I might expand on that with more time.
