Hello ruka, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first drawing for the course. It is good to read that so many students write that they are "most proud" of the fact that they just sat down and drew. This is the most important aspect of the course and one, it is hoped, in which you continue to enjoy while learning. You may wish to consider not using Sharpies for these exercises. The intense black may give a certain eclat or punch but at the sacrifice of losing some of your pictorial space, In this drawing, the Sharpie rendered parts create "holes" in the drawing. That being said, the beach is for the most part a convincing expanse. It may be an interesting exercise in another drawing to lower the eye-level line to 1/4 -1/3 above the bottom edge of the paper which will make the sky larger and will explain the space differently. All-in-all well done. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
