Caitlins sketch

A value sketch for another go at painting the Caitlins Estuary in my previous post. I wanted more of a graphic look to the painting, because the lines between the various values was quite marked (rather than all mingled as in my previous painting of it), which was what appealed to me in the first place. Done on A5 recycled paper, Superfine Staedler Black felt-tip pen.

I'm trying to decide if I like the top sketch, or the one below with more contrast added.

Below: the same sketch before I put the storm in.
