Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. lesson 1: drawing perspective. Medium weight sketch book paper, Automatic pencil and B2 pencil. For composition purposes I moved the umbrella and table closer to the tree.

Hello SistyKay, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first assignment for the course. Thank you for the information on material and reference image. [By the way, what are the dimensions of your sketch pad?] You picked a lush and shady scene. In the drawing of the ground plane can you see how it is tilting? This makes it appear as if you [the artist] or the viewer were standing high above it. This would be fine except that you have the table and the chair seat tilting in a way that does not confirm the projection [tilt] of the ground plane. If you take a piece of tracing paper and affix it to the image and trace those angles you can get a good idea of what the angles should be to give a better illusion of the pictorial depth. Also, kudos to you for moving the table and umbrella closer to the trees to make it a better composition. This is an important aspect to consider when one is drawing although it is hard to do at that time.
