Drawing for information
To get enough information to do a large studio landscape, Jack does several very careful, tight drawings. He uses a mechanical pencil and toned paper. He is drawing for information, not for a broad general effect or gesture, but for specifics. This is one of the drawings that he is using to create the big painting, and it is clipped to the easel to the right of the large painting, so that he can refer to it often.
