Hello sgkkron2492053, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first project for the course. Before I fully comment on it, would you give a bit more information? For example, what are the dimensions of the paper, what type of paper, did you work from nature or from a reference image? It is a good first effort with some solid ideas on structure in it. Look forward to your reply so that I can give the complete criticism.

Hello sgkkron, Here are my comments on the drawing. This is a very good first project, and even though it is a sketch you conveyed some practical information about space and your interest in this scene. There are some concerns about the space. The ground plane of the lake [river?] changes as it recedes into the distance. In short,the water in the foreground seems to exist on a different plane than that which is beyond the middle of the lake. This could be remedied by lowering the line that represents the bank. Also, that line describing the bank is too dark, it would help with the space if it were lighter than the foreground lines. You have posted another project which I will comment on soon. Please remember that it help me and your fellow students if you provide as much basic information as possible: the dimension and type of paper, how long did it take, the reference image; and, also, what was the source of inspiration: was this done from nature or another source.
