So called progress on an overworked sketch from two weeks ago. Done on the Fort to Sea Trail in Warrenton, Oregon. The day’s work was critiqued as having a split personality. The following attempt to improve the sketch show how to overwork a piece and not knowing when to say it’s done. Guess I’ll call it ‘Last Stand’. Think the dead trees are the remains of the huge storm of December 2007 that crippled the area.

‘Benjamin’
