Burning Fields Walk


First page in a new 3.5x5" sketchbook, with a Pigma Micron 005. Really fine lines gave me a good chance but smoke is hard with pen. Pencil would have been easier. Fun trying though.

I also had a little camera along...

This was my first clue that fields were burning on down 8th Ave. You can see the haze in the distance, where the grass meets the trees.

It was really rolling across here, back by the horses. By their whinnies and snorts I don't think they liked it.

Finally on the scene. As evinced by the truck pulling tanks, there were plenty of people around keeping an eye on things.

Like fog in a horror movie...

Humans weren't the only ones around though. This little gal tagged along for a while.

 Outta control! But all it's heading for is a ditch full of water.

Not sure what that's bales of but...it ain't no more. Held the picture down well for the smoke rolling across in the background, I reckon.
