Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Sketch pad (9x12), pencils (2h, 4h, hb, 2b, 4b, 6b), Albertian veils (diagonals and grid) erasure, framing angles. I did almost all of the drawing plein air.

What are you most proud of? I was pleased with the proportions. I think I did a better job with mid ranges. Wasn't totally pleased with the angle of drawing but couldn't see building from other angle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Albertian veil was invaluable.

Hello Eliana, Congratulations on another successful drawing. Also, thank you for providing information on material, process and insights. It is a pleasure to read how many perspectivi are finding the Albertian Veil of use. As you noted, it is a shame that you did not have a different view than this; but sometimes a frontal view, generally a simpler perspective, can as you also noted give one an opportunity to work on other important drawing elements: Proportions in this case. You are now working with a full range of values and that contributes to much of the success of the drawing. Two things to think about are the lines used for the branches of the tree in the foreground and behind the seminary. They would behave better spatially if not so dark. The cast shadow on the roof is good and convincing. Its value should be the key for the other shadows and dark values, for examples the windows, on that building. All-in-all, well done. I look forward to seeing the post of your next drawing.
