Step 3 old Tractor Ink Drawing

I thought the outline of distant foliage behind the tractor shape was distracting, so I began to layer crosshatch to fill in the negative spaces created in the background.  At this point two layers of parallel ink lines have been added to darken these spaces.  More to go.  This is tedious work, and takes a very steady hand.  I need to take frequent breaks to stretch my neck and arms.  I love ink drawing though, and find it hard to stop.
