Q&A with Joygp

Patrick Connors asked:
Hello Joygp, Welcome to Perspective in Landscape Drawing. Congratulations on posting your first assignment for the course. You did what was asked of you for the first drawing: Just Draw!. By the way, was this done from nature or a reference image? You may find in the future to have a pencil with a harder graphite, for example a 2H will give you a greater range of possible tonal rendering. I see that you already posted a redrawing of this scene so I will comment on that soon. All-in-all, a good first effort.
Joygp answered:
Yes, I used a photo as a reference image. I added it so you can see. Thank you for your suggestion on the pencil.
