Work in Progress #2

So here's my progress for the book. 

I had to talk to the writer about the type of (the amazing) tractor in this shot. He told me it's red, and it's 1950-60's Ferguson tractor. 
 

Rough position of the tractor - that looks so out of place right now

You can cal it the field of gold, you can call it the wreath of gold. I call it wow - when can I sleep today?

my hand hurts from the amount of dotting I've done for the wheat. It's not even half way done!! 

Luckily I had a brush with lots of spots - so I think I'll be spared from drawing so many dots in the middle. 

The tractor needs to change - it just doesn't look that great. 

The book itself is very grim, gothic style, so I thought instead of having the glittering gold field, to have the dark, overcast field.
