Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. My sons are taking this class. This is 11 year old Elijah's first attempt. It's the tops of two fir trees with the very top of a cherry tree poking up in between.

Hello Melodylisa, Elijah, and Ian [please pardon the group salutation and my assumption that you are all working together. This is in fact how most ateliers and workshops did things: together in groups], Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first drawings. It is pleasing to see that young people still enjoy drawing with pencils. I will be responding more on these particular drawings but I want you both to post another drawing with no border [that is the first assignment; but you may have missed it in first lesson.] I look forward to the posting of your next drawings, and will comment more on these later soon.

Hello Elijah, Your idea of drawing the two fir trees with the cherry tree in the center is interesting. If it was possible, could you have shown more of the trees? Or maybe you just like the treetops details? Remember that as neat as doing details are they can sometimes compromise or negate the space. When you make your next drawing, try to not to concentrate on the details and go for a more general view. If you do another landscape, try to include the ground and the bottom tree trunks as well as the tree tops. Look forward to seeing your first assignment and the next one.
