I started this little sketch this gray and misty morning. I was struck by the way the goalposts showed light against the dark trees and dark against the sky. I had just been reading about this phenomenon, called “counterchange” in James Gurney’s book “Imaginative Realism” the night before, and here was a textbook case before my eyes! 

Ink wash and white ink sketch of athletic field with two goalposts against a background of bare trees and distant hills.
