Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Dark Onyx pencil and 4H on medium sketch paper

What are you most proud of? I think I showed some depth by putting one tree in front of horizon and the other two behind it.

I added the tracing paper drawing with Albertian veil. Most of the changes are to the chair although proportions still seem to be off a bit. Also straightened the left tree a little. It was that slanted in real life, but the drawing looks better with it straight.

Hello Eliana18, Congratulations on this ambitious scene. It is appreciated that you shared the process of the Albertian Veil project in doing "Trees, Mountain, and Chair." First, so that we all get a better idea of how you worked, please note the dimensions of the paper. Second, you may wish to have a few more pencils that are intermedairy hardness between the Dark Onyx and the 4H. These medium hardnesses will help to give you an idea about shading with the middle values. This is a concern in the first drawing: There are distinct light and shadow masses; but the middle tone mass is somewnhat neglected. You used the Albertian Veil overlay to great advantage, especially in the depiction of the chair. Kudos to you for changing the slant of the tree, this is something that can enhance your landscapes. In mentioning the proportions of you noted that some are "off." Did you mean specifically the chair or some of the overall proportions of the landscape? In the second drawing, the massing of the foliage of the right-hand trees is very good. Last, refering to the first drawing, your observation that the placement of the trees in front of or behind the "horizon" [eye-level line] is correct. Often overlay is used to give visual cues about pictorial depth. Also, the scale of the distant trees contributes to the depth. All-in-all, well done. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing

I thought the chair was out of proportion. The drawing is on 9x12 paper.
