Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. drawing Canson sketch paper, medium tooth, 9 x 12, with graphite 2B pencil. Re-drew plum trees, with border (8x 10).Left out bench (physically moved it away from scene) and and trees in middle of field - too fussy.

Hello karlaintexas, Congratulations on posting your second drawing for the course. It is appreciated that you included material information and the reason for editing one of the elements in your drawing [as well as the reference image in the next post]. Also, as mentioned before, it is not a bad idea to redo the same scene. In removing the bench the focus and subject matter of the drawing has changed: It is now the plum trees; rather, than as in the previous drawing a bench surrounded by plum trees. Also, you removed two trees in the middleground which placed even more emphasis on the foreground group. This opens the middleground in terms of a compositional and spatial component which allows the eye to travel through the drawing differently. One concern is the angle of the front of the outbuilding, it may have been functioning better in the previous drawing. It does not seem attached to the ground plane immediately below it.

[criticism continued] This may be because there is too little of the side plane of the building to understand its spatial orientation is. All-in-all a good second drawing. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
