Hello annaBB, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first drawing for the course. Thank you for the material information [By the way, what are the dimensions of your paper?] and for the reference image. A good first effort especially in the projection of the ground plane. This is due to your placement of the eye-level line and disposition of the land masses on it. One thing to consider is that you can confirm or enhance this space by line quality. For example, the line that describes the contour of the distant land should be less distinct that the one describing the land in the foreground. Although you may not have had the time this depiction would benefit from a general tonal structure. All-in-all well done. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.

Thank you. The size is A4 ie 210x297mm. I had already watched several lessons by the time I drew it so I had probably picked up a few new tricks ....

You are welcome annaBB. Thank you for the information on material. Look forward to seeing more drawings posted as you pick up further "tricks."
