What are you most proud of? I'm glad that I finished this drawiing. As I look around to pick one of landscape picture which I took this summer. The Point Vincent Lighthouse look perpect one but I was so worried about the so many details of cliffs and how I draw lines of cliffs in terms of figuring out tones. Well, as I a beginner, the best way to this kind of landscape is copying it exactly! For projects, mostly I will draw them from my pictures due to disabilty. I'm a paraplegia who defined in a wheelchair for the last 30 years. But I will try a couple of drawing go out and give it a best shots!! I still smell the scent of ocean and feel the tickling touch of sea winds that came to me while drawing this.

I watched lesson .4 which U introduced Abellian ? and do I need to redraw one of project using the new tool? Hello Joseph Choi, In regards to your question on redrawing, I usually recommend that the student start a new drawing incorporating my commentary and/or the new principles introduced. So for the posting of your next drawing use the Albertian Veil and my commentary for a new project. That being said let's look at your new drawing, Congratulations, once again, the drawing conveys the enjoyment of your experience at Point Vicente Lighthouse. Also, thank you for all the information. It not only helps me give a more fitting criticism; but, also,

[criticism continued] It not only helps me give a more fitting criticism; but, also, helps the other students in the course.In terms of structure that will help convey the pictorial space, it would be of use if the eye-level line were lower in the page. In the drawing [and photographic image] the eye-level line [horizon] is above the cliff near the lighthouse and is compromising the depth of your most important ground plane: The ocean. If that line were lowered somewhat it would restore the depth and actually contribute to explaining depth in other parts of the drawing, for example the cliffs. Also, as mentioned in your previous drawing, be attentive to the tonal structure contributing to the overall space. For example, the rocks in the ocean in the lower right could get less dark as they go into the distance. This will be more apparent on a less cloudy day. Look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
