Hello rkapphahn, Welome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first project.It is helpful that you included all the information you did. Others can see and learn from it; and my critique is more informed and of more use to you. I cannot stress enough how important it is to draw something you like and you did this. It is conveyed in the work. I think that you are handling the spatial concepts well: The fence works as does the trail. Your handling of the tonal structure is satisfactory. It is a little confusing that you have what appears to be two different sets of shadows. The shadow on the trail falls on the left and the shadow of the fence falls on the right side. If you were drawing in that particular spot for a while the shadows will move. It confuses the space and form if there is more than one direction of the shadow masses. Compositionally, you may have focused or telescoped on the scene too closely. At some point you will want to use your cone of vision tool and see how much of the scene can be drawn. Also, a tonal distinction is needed for the path and sky. Either the sky should be a bit darker or lighter than the ground. This will give the trail even more authenticity as an inclined plane. Look forward to your next posting.
