Welcome back ccapewell, You have posted another wonderful rendering. It is impressive how large a space is conveyed and the actual drawing dimensions. There is not much to comment on with two exceptions. First, the tonal structure confirming the distance in one area: The two trees on the right. The further of the two should be somewhat less dark. The second is the composition, it seems a bit cropped. Did you work from a reference image or nature? Other than that, your penstroke or calligraphy contributes to the pictorial depth, the means to achieve detail is convincing and delightful, and a well-balanced chiaroscuro. I look forward to seeing the post of your next drawing.

Thanks for your feedback. yes working from photo here. i am still experimenting with various cropping styles, widths, and shades. I do find the chosen cropping wdith pleasing when looked upon from a distance of 6-10 feet. I do prefer a white border as it similuates a matting. Ive found that my drawings seem to look better in person then on computer, or at least on computer keepingt the image size small to simulate distance. This I believe is due to the impressionist idea of the illusion and combing of lines at a distnace that are separate up close.. perhaps the 1.5 inch might be too much, maybe 1 inch would suffice, I agree the tree needs to be darker and overlooked that as well.

Hello ccapewell, Thank you for the comments below and for including the reference image. The biggest concern in cropping a view, even if it does permit it to be rendered small, is the compromise of the pictorial space. You may need to slightly change some of you ideas on calligraphic representation but I think you could work your preferred dimensions and still get all the space. Nevertheless, again, this is a wonderful drawing.

Wonderful accomplished control of pen and ink lines.

I think it might help to further delineate the foreground bushes...a little more heavy detail in front might enhance your sense of depth.
