Spent the afternoon on a hot and dusty county road painting oil landscape studies and collecting smiles and two-fingers-off-the-wheel waves from farmers.
Here's a photo of part of the vista. I would look at parts of it and try to get a feel for the roll of the landscape and shapes of the fields, but I took great liberty with pushing the compositions around.
The (above) shots of the 5x7 studies are lame as new oil paintings bounce back the flash badly, but you get the general sense of what they are about. Hopefully.
