Sketching as preview for oil painting

This is a graphite sketch for an oil painting I started a few years ago and set aside. I guess part of the value of keeping sketchbooks hanging around and forgetting about them and then rediscovering them again is as a prompt to revisit stalled projects like this one. The following sketch in oil is obviously not from the paperbased sketchbook, it is oil on board. Can you tell where the figurative belongs (and was painted in at one time) in the landscape below? May have to revisit this one soon, happy to run across this today.
