Still on Stratton

Again, this morning I went up to the top of Stratton Road and walked into the field but this time looked north, and did the drawing above.   I returned later in the afternoon and first reworked yesterday's painting a bit.  It is the view looking south with the Taconic mountains visible on the horizon.  I wanted to simplify things.  When I got around to today's painting, simplification was still the goal.  In the north view you can see the mountain known as "The Dome."  The panel I used was pre-toned, which I think helped.
