Hello Iain, Congratulations on your industry in making new artwork. Before I comment any further, please let me know that you read and understood the previous criticism.

Hello Iain, You have a drawn a forest well, it has the trees growing in a natural way and not drawn straight up and down. Also, it was useful, especially for the pictorial depth, that you started with a lawn or grass in the foreground. This acts like a threshold for the viewer to "get into" the space of the drawing. It may help that there is a midtone value, drawn with an HB pencil, in the middle ground and further distances. [Something around the value of the border.] This midtone value can change, become a light midtone or become a dark midtone, as the need to depict different space or other things arises. This will help bring the foreground tress closer and place the the other elements in space as well. Did the border help you in this drawing? I look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing.
