Great drawing. Love your use of line. The tree in the very middle seems like it should be fainter since it is in the distance.

Hello TonyD, Thank you for taking the time to comment on katidamor's drawing. You are right about this being a great drawing and that the middle tree should be less apparent. I look forward to seeing the posting of your first project for the course.

Hello katidamor, Congratulations on this 3rd drawing. In this drawing you have made some important improvement on those lessons learnt in the first two projects. For example, in rendering the space the tone and line are much better executed. You are using the Albertian Veil to great advantage for the analysis and depiction of space. In that regard, the eye-level is correctly placed in the center. In future compositions you may wish to try and place the eye-level line lower than the compositional center. [Please see Lesson 1: Masterpieces in Perspective, although in all the examples the eye-level line is critical to the understanding of the space and the artist's intent you will find the example of the Rembrandt's landscape of particular interest [about 17 minutes]. Also, in the tonal structure, another critical component mentioned during the discussion of that Dutch painting, could have been a bit more. For example, in the foreground a light middle value on the path would helps its

[criticism continued] For example, in the foreground a light middle value on the path would helps its projection into space. TonyD's encouragement and comment about the middle tree are of use. Therefore, be careful about tonal structure: relative darks and lights must be placed to confirm or promote the illusion of depth. In this case, the trees diminish in scale convincingly but the tones do not confirm the trees position in their space. Last, a reminder for you and everyone: Please remember that it will help me with my comments [and aid your fellow students] if you provide as much basic information as possible: the dimension and type of paper, how long did it take, the reference image; and, also, what was the source of inspiration: was this done from nature or another source. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next project for the course.
