Hi Ronelle, yes the pdf's work just fine.

Another stunning drawing. I am really happy that you are now getting those darks nice and dark, it has made a huge difference to your drawings.

You have created nice texture here, I like the fact that you haven't tried to copy the textures that Dennis drew exact, but rather used your knowledge of the techniques to add your own unique texture  :yippee:

There is however one error that needs attention - the perspective on the upper section of the roof. The left hand angle (shown in blue) is too upright which makes the perspective look wrong. It is compounded because all the corrugated sheet's angle also correspond with that angle. Adjusting these angles will complete a stunning drawing.

A small adjustment to look out for is shown with the red arrows - the colours and textures  of the barn wall will be the same where it shows "through" the gate. If we don't do that then the piece showing "through" the gate will appear as though it is part of the gate.

When drawing we are creating the illusion of distance on a flat surface and those overlapping opportunities are what enables us to create that illusion  O0

You have improved a heap since the course began, well done.  :clap:

Hi Nolan  - thanks for the feedback - I can't see where you loaded the drawing with the corrections?

 However, when I look at the barn now, based on just reading your feedback, I completely see that the roof is at the wrong angle and the see-through bit at the gate!  I actually struggled with the gate and re-drew it about 3 times and then forgot about completing it with the rest of the barn!

Do you think the angle of the window is also a bit wrong with the shadow?

as far as the shadow is concerned, it is the same the original. I suspect that the shadow is cast by the counter and not by the flap at the top of the window and that is why it where it is
