Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I removed my lesson 2 by mistake. I am reposting. In lesson 2, I did the drawing that I had started in Lesson 1, but with more details and with a border. I used graphite pencils and charcoal sticks. For the charcoal, I used a dark grey, a light grey and white. I found it very difficult to work with the charcoal sticks, so I will probably use the pencils as opposed to the charcoal sticks in the future. The size of my sketch is 8 1/2 X 11. I used a hard book sketching book. For my next lesson I will go with a larger sketching tablet as was recommended in the course.

Hello artistecylh, In accidentally erasing your original posting oof Lesson 2 did you lose my criticism? Alas. Your commentary is appreciated, it certainly gives me and the others some important information on process and insight. Since this is a more developed idea from your Lesson 1 drawing a comparison can be made. In referring to the first drawing one successful concept of space is there was no vertical element divding the compostional neatly in half. If you were to redo this drawing eliminating that [the lampost] would benefit the spatial structure. Also, as you noted, the charcoal is giving you some trouble so switch to a course-recommended medium with which you have had success: Graphite. Also, making some of your drawings on a larger dimension sketch pad should help. Last, see if you can introduce a middleground. You have a distinct foreground and middleground; it is necessary, in this instance, to have a transition between the two. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
