What are you most proud of? Taking on this immense landscape. I do notice that I need to darken the closest mountain on the far right.

Hello KristinaV, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Thank you for the information about material, and including a reference image, your insights, and criticisms. Congratulations on posting this ambitious and fine drawing. The spatial structure is handsomely rendered. In this drawing, with only several exceptions, the tonal expression confirms and promotes all the pictorial depth depicted linearly and by the ground plane. One exception is the dark shadow mass in the middle ground mountains next to the sky. Due to atmospheric perspective and according to the relative shadow mass this should not be so dark. The other exception is directly behind your figure. Although one may argue that this aura of darkness may lead the eye to the figure it also places a hole in the paper. Nevertheless, this is a solid and well structured drawing. You did especially well with the detail in that the viewer's eye appreciates the difference in the foreground, middleground, and background.

[criticism continued] In each of those three sections there are delightful experiences with which the eye engages and then travels to another part of the composition. In the future, it may be of use to lower the eye-level line just a bit more. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
