Hi there,

Here is the picture of the Lake drawing.  The lighting is not good with the camera so i don't know if it is a good view or not.

Its the 2nd one uploaded but its the 5th one i had completed before I was happy for you to see the completed one.

I hope its ok.

I think the trees are straighter.  I tried hard to get that bit right.

Its the first chance I have had in getting this completed as alot has been happening here. 

Hopefully things will settle down for a while and I will be able to do somemore drawing and be able to post pictures too...

thankyou in advance.

bye..... :)

Hi Leessa--I am realatively new to PB and I don't know that I have said hello to you before.  Are you new here.  If so  :welcome:.  I like your lake drawing, especially the look that it is early in the morning and a bit hazy.  Like your reflections and the fisherman who looks like he is in the morning mist.  You will really enjoy the drawing lessons to come.

Hi Leesa,
I'm glad you found some time to draw.
The boat with the little man looks a bit light.  It's probably the photo.
I'll leave the comments to Nolan and his expert opinion.  But I think you've started off well with the course.

your drawing looks great. I suspect there is a dull spot on your photo making the boat and a section of the trees look lighter than they really are, just confirm this is the case?

Great start Leessa   :clap:  Takes a bit of practice to get your photos looking right, not to worry...the drawing looks good.   O0
Cheers, Val
