This is a drawing I've worked on for a while now. Is it done? Do you miss something. I need help to see if it´s ready or need some changes. I would love some honest opinions! :smitten:

This is a beautiful drawing Lotta.  O0

What it needs are more darks. ie: the rounded rail of the fence, it tends to meld into the background, deepen the shadow along the eaves of the roof. Look for areas where you can better define shape/curvature.

Use your darks to enhance the lights. By doing so you will create more depth and dimension.
Cheers, Val

Lotta

Your  piece is drawn well, but Val is correct in explaining the need for darker values.

You can do this!!

This is really interesting and superbly done. I agree just some darks to add some contrast will do wonders i think... :clap: :clap: :clap:
