In developing my schematics, I try to work with the landscape directly. It has been difficult with rain and wind here to work directly in the landscape, but this is one such piece. I began with a quick sketch on-site and followed with a photo for further reference. I created the schematic in the studio afterward. In many of the diagrammatic pieces I have been working on, I created the schematic right onto the original sketch. In this example I worked on tracing paper to preserve the original sketch. The image above reads counter-clockwise: from photo reference to the first painted rendering on oak veneer.
