This is a rough drawing before using albertian veil

I draw this image from looking down our neighborhood street. I placed tracing paper and redraw it. Due to our house is poistion at the higher level than other houses, I am afraid of that the eye lvel is just right although it is little bit suspiciously higher. Anyhow, the crssing blue line help me out interms of finding out correct angle of roofs which should parallel withe the crossing line.

Hello Joseph Choi, Thank you for posting both images: The first done "free-hand" and the second with the Albertian Veil. Did you find working with the tracing paper of use? This post is the first drawing in which you work directly from nature. It has a different feel than the previous drawings, can you see that? It is effective and I look forward to seeing more like this. The ground plane and buildings seem to be below the eye-level line as you noted they were. To give this type of drawing more effect you may wish to place the ground plane and buildings well below the horizontal center line; thereby, giving a larger compositional space to the sky. The buildings in the foreground are solid and convincingly occupy the space of the foreground. Less successful are the buildings in the middleground. Between the foreground building and the garage is that a street with pavements or walkways? If so, please reexamine the angle of the walkways. Drawing them perpendicular to the ground plane and

[criticism cont.] Drawing them perpendicular to the ground plane which has compromised the projection of the street into space. also, be careful of the tonal structure throughout the drawing. For example, the windows in the garage are the same as the windows and the street. A slight difference would help with the depiction of space. Also, if possible, watch your pencil stroke as regards the defining of planes. In the street, it would be helpful if the strokes were not all in the same direction. Congratulations on these drawings, especially the second, you were most successful with the roof tops, which were the most difficult planes to project. Look forward to your next posting.

The drawing on the sketch book was a rough draft, but the one, which was drawn on the Albertian Veil was drawn on a tracing paper. I made a Albertian Veil with Plexiglass and will keep work on as you directed this weekend. THAX.
