The drawing continues, adding more long strokes of grass and small trees and weeds growing in the grass. I add ultramarine blue strokes to the grass to suggest a shadow. I continue adding layers of both kinds of coloured pencil in the trees to outline and define each shape. I try not to draw in every needle or bough, but make pleasing blurred shapes. I changed the position of many of the trees and the horizon line to make a more even composition, thus changing the original sketch slightly. These things become more apparent as you get more into the drawing.
