What are you most proud of? getting started.. and getting finished...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it.. ... sometimes I don't know how to draw, what I see. And sometimes I thought the tones are too deep, but looking for it from a distance, I saw I need to go darker in the shades.. But - by doing it, I learned a lot and, now as I 've finished it, I'm often thinking, how did I draw it.. ;) .. And .. if you are wearing glasses, take, if it's possible, a look without them.. I think glasses are good, but mine distort during drawing.. after finishing the project and taking the photo, I saw something incorrect in my picture. No.. I don't tell it- I think, you will find it out.. :)

Oh, 're welcome. I am nosey ;) If you need, I could mail you another size of the drawing. I did not use the albertian veil, becauseI looked the lesson about it after drawing.

Hello a.d leise, You know the reason I wanted to wait was to try to use the Albertian Veil on your image and drawing. An interesting exercise would be to do just that: Use the A.V. to analyze the photographic image and make a new drawing. Then, if possible, go to the actual site and use the A.V. to analyze the space and make another drawing. It is good that you are drawing and posting your projects. Looking at this latest project, there in evenness in the all overall tone that cancels or compromise your pictorial space. For example, the overall tonal structure in the foreground is a bit too similar to the distant hills. That being said, the buildings are rendered well, that is their tonal structure reveals their form and their apparent distance in space. Compositionally, the drawing seems a bit compressed side to side. This too hampers the appreciation of space. Lowering the eye-level line and making the elements of the scene somewhat smaller would help.

Last the wonderful tower is too close to the top of the page, this too contributes to the flattening of the space.

Thank you, Patrick, for these helpful comments. Yes, I will use the Albertian Veil next time before drawing. And I think, it's better to draw outside and take a picture of what I see instead of taking a photo of a calender without the possibility of looking from another point to find the best sight. Thank you for taking the time for looking at my project.

You are welcome a.d. leise. Look forward to seeing the posting of your next drawing done plein air and with the Albertian Veil.
