It is a hard picture  to draw, so you did well.  Needs more shading - compare with the original and you'll see where it needs to be darker.

Keep at it.  You are making good progress.

Ena, you have made a very good start  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I can see from your drawing that you are too much in a hurry to finish it. My very best advice is this: Take it very slowly, compare what you are drawing from and study just how the actions are performed. Do this, and you will see a vast improvement in no time flat  O0

Ena, a very important step to take when drawing buildings is to firstly construct the perspective. The lines representing the roof, walls and their elements (windows, doors) should converge towards the two vanishing points located on the horizon line (which in this case is positioned at the eye level of the viewer). Also, the walls/window/door should have almost perfectly vertical lines. In the beginning it would be a good idea to use a ruler in order to help you trace these lines.
Here are two examples regarding the basics of two points perspective construction. Maybe it looks challenging at first, but with time and practice you will learn it for sure.

Ena, I have straightened out the barn here. Be careful to keep the verticals straight up when you take the photographs.
 There is nothing wrong with the barn itself here. Your main problem is with the leaves and the grass. There is nothing to distinguish between the two.
Study carefully how I did the leaves and as well as the way I indicated the grass. Take your time when you do these - don't rush. Keep at it - you are doing well :flowers:
