What are you most proud of? That I was able to filter out the colour and just concentrate on the various tones in order to draw the scene. The reflections of the scrubby trees and plants were the most difficult for me. Thankfully there was almost no breeze and most of the abundant bird-life were elsewhere, so the water was quite smooth.

Dear Adhills Gal, Your several drawings posted all convey your pleasure in these views, As you noted in this last project, you succeeded in focusing on this as a tonal exercise. Could you include one more piece of information: size of the paper? Also, have you used the tools discussed in Lesson 2 yet? Please respond and we can discuss this drawing further.

Sorry for the delay in responding Patrick. The sketchbook is A4 size ( approx 8.5" x 11.75"). Yes I did use my viewfinder L's. I did two rough drawings to road test the best composition and decided on the one submitted because I felt that it may invite the viewer to ponder what scene lay around the other side of the scrub covered point.

One more thing, you will find it of use if the border is a light midtone and completely toned, in short no white showing. Check Lesson 2 at 3:45 minutes for an example of the tone.

Thanks Patrick. I will pay more attention to the borders in future. :-)
