In 'artistic' terms, I much prefer winter trees to summer trees. All that greenery gets in the way of the structure.
I have a friend who always describes summer landscapes as being like fields of Cabbages; which is rather how I see them too.
Much more fun to draw the 'scaffolding' rather than whatever is being held-up.
I love to walk in a leafy landscape, but not to draw, or paint it.
