Title: Abandoned Homestead
Post by: linley.plester on September 29, 2017, 04:51:06 AM
I made all sorts of mistakes with this drawing, and then tried to cover them up by putting in really dark shadows. I'm redoing it, but I thought I'd post this one anyway, as despite all the errors, I don't think it's all that bad.

Linley

I like it.  Has a nice homespun feel to it.  Would love good as an illustration in a mystery novel.

I like it very much Linley.  O0    The only thing I would fix on this would be the tree. The trunk looks to be in front of the corner of the porch, but the crown is behind. Perhaps an overhanging branch or two across the front corner would sort that.
