Studies from 2009 - Landscapes, with more detail

These were done a few months after the first attempts at this exercise. After getting used to think of values first, details no longer feel so distracting! I'm trying to ignore most visual noise and go for the most visible shapes. At this point it should be safe to put in some details: once you learn to get the big picture you also learn which details are useful and which ones are not, so there can be a few more branches as long as they they don't harm clarity. (Again india ink, from random Flickr photos.)
