choose a suitable location, something with strong compositonal values. Draw what you feel, making marks, working on the whole picture and, at first, mapping out tone and shape. Working in is fun, using fingers and nails. Wind noises and the distant barking of dogs or squeal of excited flying geese are optional. Finish with small marks of detail or movement.
Serve in a simple white mount and frame.
