The painting above is of Tretower near Crickhowell. I did it today. I have often said that I make a sketchin most instances and then do the painting, as was the case this time. In a large or complex piece I do a detailed drawing first called a cartoon. Occasionaly I will just paint from scratch if I am confident I have worked out the composition and values.

Anyway the sketch is just a working out of the painting and there may be real differences to the finished item.
I often just use printing paper it is so cheap and I will generally through it away afterwards anyway. Ihad thought about making it a snow scene but in the end I didn't probably seen to much snow already.
