Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I used Canson Drawing art book 1557, 9" x 12" medium texture; graphite pencils 2B, 1B, HB, H, and 2 H, erasers and shading stick. I employed the use of the border in midtone, and 2 l's. The border was made more even by using the shading stick. The l pieces were a little difficult to keep putting up and down but they do keep the focus in check. This time I used a photo to help me stabilize the shadows. I tried to sketch a scene which "spoke to me" because of the emotional involvement that drives one to get it right. This seems to take more time than I would like to select; but when I am finished, I have tried to capture a view which I enjoy revisiting. I tried to keep the values lighter as the scene went back and engage line value as well. However, how to draw the values on the the leaves of the Myrtle tree I was not sure about how to draw. I tried to keep the most detail in the foreground. Which mid ground is correct especially on the trunk of the twin trees? Maybe neither one?
