Hello Lisaper, As all of us can see, with each drawing you are incorporating the lesson, learning from the previous exercises- from your mistakes and successes- and, in so doing, conveying a personal expression. In short, the viewer knows what interested you about the scene. There are only three more comments: 1. In the foreground lower left, there are some branches, maybe a defoliated bush? As the branches go to the end the line representing them should get lighter. 2. In this regard, the evenness to the line gives the impression that all the branches are at the same distance to us flattening them. A small change in line variation, a bit lighter here or a bit darker there as the branches move towards or away from the viewer, will do much to convey the space in which those branches exist. 3. The drawing has a good deal of atmosphere due to the care with which you placed the tonal structure. This initial tonal success curtailed you from going darker with some of the shading, which the drawing
needs to be complete. At this point the drawing is "realized" but not finsihed. Understandably, you stopped not wanting to ruin your work thus far. Or maybe
you were finished for the day. Leave this drawing as is. As mentioned before, it does succeed on many levels, and start the next project. In that drawing you will use a full range of tones starting as you did here and carefully buiding on a solid foundation. Look forward to your next posting.
