I worked this piece from a couple of photos of the road that leads to Dinesen Prairie. It goes between fields and past a plumb and mulberry thicket to get to the prairie. This dirt road evokes so many memories with it's loneliness and expectation.
Having done the 12 in 12 sketch, I realize that some things will be needed in a larger work. The picture has no focal point and the lines all send the eye to the right off the page. This is the ideal place for one or two figures walking on the road to be the focal point and to keep the eye within the picture.
