This is my first landscape in over 5 years. I had forgotten about all the possible distractions and especially the mass of leaves and trees that make it hard to determine any shapes at all.
I felt majorly rushed on this painting, I only spent an hour on it but by the time I was finished the shadows had move so far that I could only make up what I thought the values would look like. And because I was rushed the drawing and values are pretty far off.

How can I improve the drawing
I was so rushed on this painting I understand that the drawing is way off. I’m going to have to start painting landscapes earlier in the day when the sun is high and more stable.
