I just noticed the new challenge and thought I'd have a stab at it.  The clouds are based on this photo but after the sketch I really stopped looking at it.

I'm trying to practice clouds more.  I notice I have a habit of defaulting to puffy cumulus clouds if I'm not studying a reference.  I think a lot of artists do.

I didn't want to dither much either but habit got a hold of me and I kind of did a lot anyway.

Also the scene under the sky is kind of a vague homage to Jean-Pierre Ugarte.
