Once again, thank you for the comments artistecylh, good and correct endorsement.

Hello zwiegea, Congratulations on posting another successful drawing, one which displays your improvement in tonal structure as a means to pictorial space. The tones convey an evocative atmospheric effect. There are two things that would further endorse this atmosphere. The first is to diminish less abruptly the transition of the cast shadow under the bridge deck on the left foreground. The second are to diminish the lines that describe the faraway bank edge, some of the trees, and the treetops. All-in-all, well done. If you enjoyed working on tone paper with the chalk and charcoal, I would recommend doing more: Landscapes, still lives, and portraits. I look forward to seeing the post of your next drawing.

[criticism continued] Is this your final assignment? If so, I imagine there are no more assignments to post. Congratulations on successful completion of the course!

Thank you for the course, it is an inspiration to see and listen to you! I enjoyed the course and sketching.

Nice made me jealous before I started. I listen to the class, print the list and then go back and do the work while reviewing others' projects and critiques. It helps me to see your project, critique it myself, then compare my understanding with Mr. Conner's point of view. I love your work, but I too observed that the abrupt change of values needed some mitigation. Congratulations on a fine drawing. I think by tomorrow I will buckle down and make a fool of myself on paper by comparison. Keep up the good work!
