Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. It was a beautiful day to be outside, so I did a quick sketch in pencil, then brought it back home and used the water soluble graphite to finish it. I also took a picture of the scene and removed the color to get a better idea of tonal values as suggested. I can't say that I like the result so much, but I did enjoy the process---being outside, playing with the graphite--which made it fun.

I like the use of negative painting. You did a great job.

Oh my lmfr, I may have to admonish you for negative thinking! At least as regards pictorial space.

Hello kamosphere, Congratulations on using the criticism from your previous post and revisiting Lesson #1. Also, thank you for the information on material and process. If you are enjoying the process continue to do these. Many of them! It is an ideal way to work and, in the process, train one's space and form memory. It is only a matter of inexperience that the result does not please you. The experience will be two-fold: First, one generally gets better the more he or she does something. Second, you will become aware and appreciate more what the aesthetic can be. Also, look at watercolors, not just the finished meticulous ones but others, like those of Rodin or some of Claude's pen and brush drawings of the Roman countryside. There are some lovely washes in this drawing and you may be on to something. Do not neglect the all-important spatial structure. You may want to do an assignment in a medium for which you have more control and is more forgiving: Charcoal or pencil.

[criticism continued] I look forward to the posting of your next drawing for the course.

love this picture! you make the trees pop. I like how it isn't an exact rendition with all the details, but we get your image of the dark vs light space
