Drawn into imaginary landscape...

As I mentioned in an earlier post, lately I feel compelled to return to drawing; the subject has been birds but yesterday I just wanted to make a landscape - an imaginary one.  Years ago I used to make 22" x 30" pen & ink and colored pencil drawings - like this one:

I used to make a complete layout in pencil before inking.

I was curious to see how I would draw my imaginary places now.  I have a couple of views of my process:

Smaller format: 6" x 8". Sketchy layout then straight into inking.

Changes happen :-)

Inking completed.

And now the color decision.  I would like to do something different so pastels perhaps???
