Hello Mewzikgal, It is pleasing to see how engaged you are with drawing, drawing from memory- and posting those drawings. Although you may be correct in your assessment that this is not your best drawing; please do not dismiss it too quickly. There is a good deal of success here. For example, the composition is a success in terms of spatial structure. The tonal expression of this drawing is realized but not quite complete and this may be due to the ambitious undertaking. Two things to note are the flora in the foreground by the base of the tree and the shading on the bushes on the right side. The flora could have been described with less line and more tone. Or, perhaps a tone placed first and then the linear description? The modeling for the bushes needs to be rethought, it is not in concert with the rest of the drawing. All-in-all this is a good drawing one in which the artist has conveyed her delight of the experience to the viewer.
