"Wheat Field, Boschaud, France"

Another day...another French wheatfield (this one's next to the ruins of the Cistercian monastery, Boschaud). I finished it an hour ago (having started it HOURS and HOURS ago), and I thought that drawing wheat fields (I've now done this at least five times) is like at least two other common human activites....even if you never really learn how to do it (or enjoy it much, for that matter), you do eventually learn how (and why) to fake it.
