Landscape inspiration

I borrowed a book about 19th century  french painter Edouard Debat Ponsan. His style was very classical, but he also liked to sketch outdoors and the result, nearly impressionist, was the subject of a recent exhibition. I did some studies on dark wood panel after his work
    Catalogue from the exhibition

And a few of my own studies  after Debat Ponsan (5x9 in) 


Using the same technique, this last one was done from a personal reference
