I did this in horrible conditions: high wind and, eventually, rain. My whole set up almost fell over twice - classic plein air misery. I slogged home in a very foul mood certain I was going to wipe out the whole mess but too tired to do it right away. Then something funny happened - the sketch looked pretty good from a distance. I worked on it for a few hours in the studio and went out and did a drawing from the same spot. One day I'll fix it up; shouldn't take much.
