Hello Lundema, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first drawing for the course. Thank you for the information. Not only is this a lovely drawing; but, also, kudos to you for working from memory. It cannot be encouraged enough to create in this manner. To this end, the 19thcentury French painter Eugne Delacroix observed, The living model never answers well the idea or impressions the painter wishes to express; one must, therefore, learn to do without one, and for that, you must acquire facility, furnish one's memory to the point of infinitude, and make numerous drawings after the old masters. There is some lovely detail here adding to the spatial structure and charm. Notably, the fence, the furrows, and the foliage. If it is wintertime where you live now is a good time to study branches to understand the volume of the foliage. Also, draw some bird's eye views of trees in winter. I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.

I really enjoyed this picture! It reminded me of a park I visited near St. Charles, IL. Thank you for posting it!
