Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Started with pencil,drew in albertson veil lines and started with a tonal value sketch. once happy with general tones, used brush pen to experiment with mark making. washed in with a grey marker over pencil discovered today I can use the veil as a guide for my marks for direction and size. I think I like being more obvious about pointing marks back to sight line. will definitely experiment with this more. dimensions are 9X12 on bristol for this and my other drawings.

Hello ccapewell, Congratulations on posting your drawing for Lesson #2. Also, thank you for the information on process and materials. In the calligraphy or stylus stroke you are contributing to the spatial structure with the direction of the line. You will want to consider varying the quality of the line: Its strength and value. For example, you succeed in the path on the left, most of the the lines get less distinct lighter and thinner. This is not true of the trees on either side of the path, the lines and tones of the tree trunks and some of the foliage remain consistent as the distance changes. Also, the lines on the mountains and in the sky are a bit superfluous. The tone was adequate for the distant hills and a light tone, which can be varied, one for the sky would suffice. Be careful of your "mark making" or it will become surface decoration because it does not enhance the pictorial depth. All-in-all a good drawing.

[criticism continued] It is, for the most part, enhanced by your experiments with the markers and wash. I look forward to the posting of your next drawing for the course.
