Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Aerial view of a region near my home. I took searched google maps to find my area, then took an aerial view of the image and recreated it. Drawn on a 50lb fine tooth surface, 9 x 12 in. I used just a 2 hb graphite pencil. I enjoyed this last drawing. I found it a little difficult to draw, but I liked what I produced.

Hello artistecylh, Congratulations on a successful recreation of the Google image, It seems that you captured the Plan or aerial view of your house and surrounding property. Also, the rendering of the values is more natural than your previous image. All-in-all, well done.

I was under the impression that this did not need to be such a detailed vision of the Birdseye view. Is it possible for me to acquire an F in an online Craftsy class?

I think it was really clever to use Google to get a good idea of the area you were to draw........clever!

Thank you. I use Google quite a bit for various needs, I thought if the service is there, why not use it!
