Hello Joygp, Congratulations on posting another drawing and on your success for resisting the seductive charms of the outline. When you compare this drawing with your previous ones you can see that this has more atmosphere. An outline would have diminished that quality considerably. Another idea to consider is to not focus on a section of your view so much. Either get back from the scene more [use your cone of vision tool] or if you are working from a reference image that you shot and used the zoom feature on the camera consider not using it to this extreme. Last, be careful with your tonal expression around the foliage of the trees. It is a bit too dark and serves to isolate them rather than incorporate them in space. All-inall, well done, you are improving. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
