Against the Light

A couple of drawings from yesterday's sketchbook.  I went walking in the woods at Hopkins Forest.  One approach that I like is called "contre-jour," literally "against the day light."  I look in the direction of the sunlight, trying to block it with a tree trunk if possible, otherwise, one can't see anything from the glare, and proceed to draw.  Besides the glare making it difficult to see edges yesterday, it was quite cold, making my efforts shorter in duration.  But I think you get the idea.
