Hello zwiegea, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first drawings for the course. Two questions: 1.) What are the dimensions of your drawings? and 2.) What was the inspiration for these drawings? Is there a reference image you could post? Emptiness- and filling a void- are profound themes in art. Despite the seemingly modest aims of the course "showing nothingness" is in the purview of the course. A few compositional changes could greatly enhance the space and may give the nothingness you desire. The first thing to do is to lower the eye-level line in the composition so that the sky expands to 2/3 or 3/4 of the dimensions of the paper. Second, scale the buildings down, make them smaller. In perspective, this means that you are moving the picture plane closer to you and further away from the models that you are drawing. Start with those changes and see if they help. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.

Hello zwiega, Is it possible for you to post your new drawings separately from this post? This can be done by clicking on the orange rectangle to the right and above that reads, "+Add a Project." [I think that you are adding the images from your original posted image.] The primary reason to do it this way is that it makes it easier to know when you posted a new image. On another note, thank you for adding the information about the dimensions 36 x 24 cm [approx. 14 x 9.5 inches] of your drawing[s] and for your insights. You are doing very well in the course and your rendering of buildings is improving with each drawing. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.

For got to ask: Would it be possible to move the last three images to new posts? If not, let me know and I will comment on them here.
