Hello Alex Buzunov, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Your name is familiar had you posted an image, comment or question before? No matter, this is a wonderful watercolor and it is appreciated that you included the linear placement [drawing] and a reference image. During the summer the beach is particularly rich with opportunity to do people and it seems that you are making the most of that. I will limit my comments mostly to the drawing because that is how the course was designed. First, what are the dimensions of the drawing? Second, what were your drawing materials? You did some wonderful things with the scale, notably in the depiction of the figures and beach chairs as one sees examples in the foreground, middleground, and distance. Also, the tire tracks contribute to the conveyance of pictorial space. One consideration is the tracks on the left, they are less convincing because they do not seem to stay on the ground plane as the other elements do.

[criticism continued] In the watercolor, they are less perceptible and do not distract the eye. You have given just enough information in detail and line strength to the buildings in the distance. They confirm the spatial structure in the ground plane and are very useful in the composition. One thing that may be of use is to consider a change in the composition. By this, I mean to consider to do another drawing with everything fairly the same but add 3-5 inches to the right hand side. This will center the foreground figures and, I believe, will enhance the space even more. All-in-all, a wonderful idea and drawing. I look forward to seeing the post of your next drawing [and watercolor].
