Landscape and the Figure

One of my ongoing challenges is to develop some of my life drawings into something more complete without losing the freshness and spontaneity.  There are a few artists I admire that do this successfully but finding my own path is another matter.  I had a lightbulb moment recently and with one of my sketches done on drafting film, looked at alongside a recently aquired landscape painting, and came up with this.  The landscape is by the artist Paul Hird
