Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. My sketch paper for this lesson was a 9 x 12, 50lb, fine tooth surface. The finished drawing was 8 x 10. In this drawing we were asked to draw a rectangle of 8x10 with a border and light Albertian Veil in our sketch. I was almost done when I noticed that my line of sight was not in the correct area, so I drew a new line where I thought the sight line should be.

Hello artistcylh, Congratulations on another assignment completed and posted. The composition is of interest as regards the placement of the eye-level line: A bit higher than the horizontal center line. [Your placement of the eye-level line looks correct.] The tonal aspect of this drawing looks mechanical. Also, it does not seem to be done by the same artist who did the previous drawings. Are you trying some new ideas? Perhaps, you are experimenting with simplifying value? In that case, the compressing the tones or values into a limited range may compromise pictorial space. In short there are some lights and some darks but not much half-tones that would be useful for transitions. There are some elegant and stylish effects achieved but the pictorial space has been sacrificed. In the future, be careful of all your shadow mass reading a similar values. If you are working from photographs this is hard to do as the camera often does not "see" depth.

[criticism continued] All-in-all, your image conveys a certain immediacy effectively. I look forward to seeing the post of your next image.

You are absolutely right. I did try to outline more than to draw. I think I will go back to my original way of drawing. Many thanks for all the comments that you have provided. I learn more from it.

I love the style! I love the sharp contrast, but I understand what he is saying.

Thank you for the compliment and yes, Mr. Conners was absolutely right, it is a different style than my usual compositions.
