Here are some details about my project:

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Heavyweight Tagboard 9x12 medium tooth - Staedtler drawing pencils - 2b and Holland HBO, blending stick, Albertian Veil. This is my own design - a quick sketch today - I raised the eye level to give more foreground - not sure I was successful. It almost feels overworked - like I should have stopped sooner.

I really like the shading in the foreground and the detail on the barn.

The fallows in the field really have texture. Your trees are beautiful.

Hello Mewzikgal, Once again, it is wonderful to see your drawings and your improvement. As one of your fellow perspectivi noted the attention to the furrows and barns is impressive. You mentioned that you may have overworked it but I disagree. Instead, it may be that there is an element missing. For example, the middleground is neglected, you have a wonderful foreground and a distant background but no transition in between. Sometimes that happens in nature, but the artist still must get the pictorial depth. Perhaps in the region occupied by the barn and the swath of land to the left of it you may have reduced the detail and linear quality a tad? Lessening the line that describes the back edge of the field will help. Also, there are two problems with the perspective of the barn. The first is the roof of the barn the two diagonal sides are not "vanishing" to a common point of convergence or vanishing point. The second is the sides seem flat due to the fact that neither side vanishes on a diagonal. This may have occured when you lifted the eye-level line. Despite this, all-in-all well done. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.

Thank you for your comments - they have given me more to think about. Over the next couple of weeks I will be making some revisions - this class is definitely challenging my thinking about how I approach that blank, white sheet of paper!
