Hello Julie Davenport, Congratulations on posting your second assignment. As one can see in these posting many students have benefited from redoing an assignment or drawing. This is the case with your Mountain Scene with Boarder. In the redoing of the scene you have lower the eye-level line and this give a better anchor to the spatial structure. As you develop your appreciation and ability it will become more and more important to understand that the tonal structure will need to be employed to confirm those planes [ground plane] and lines [the bans of the river, the foliage of the trees] as space. For example, the shading of the three trees in the foreground gives the eye a visual cue that will be the scale for similar trees in the landscape. In this matter, the trees in the distance should not be as dark or they will come forward. Make them slightly less dark and you will be using atmospheric perspective [Lesson 7] to place them in the space of the picture.

[criticism continued] Also, the tonal structure informs us where the light source is. This is critical to the appreciation and understanding of space. Remember, when the artist depicts light he or she simultaneously depicts space. All-in-all, a good drawing. I look forward the posting of your next drawing.
