I've got a couple of larger oil commissions this winter, which is a lovely time to do some studio work. Here are two possible sketches for one of them. Clients like the trees in one of my pastel studies but didn't like the airplane trails in the sky. They like my natural clouds better. So here are two quick studies with two different kinds of skies for them to see which they prefer before I start in on painting.
