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.
