Foggy Morning Hiltcher Park Trail


I have sketched and posted this tree before but the subject is such a strong contrast of light and dark that I am drawn to it over and over again.  I sketched it a few days ago, then did an ink wash yesterday and then today I planned on painting the strong values.  I was surprised to find the misty fog in the background and less contrast.  I guess I will be painting it again.  I don't quite have it yet.
