A kind of too fast of a drawing..about an hour and half...just got too impatient, then put away, got out hour later, reevaluated, another hour..good enough

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Wow! I'd say you called this done just right. Love the trees forming the arch right into the distance. Beautiful.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Thanks Val and Dennis.  I'm impressed with it and yet not that impressed...maybe that's why it's possibly better than I think. My art maybe has gotten to the point where it's "above" my own emotional satisfaction and i don't see it as it is to others. I know it's not GREAT! though (not fishing haha).          You got me goin......i started another drawing few hours after this one and it's going really nice so far.

Thanks Mysti...........i was hoping you could because i felt it myself. Certainly a stark image.
