Great job, Brian! I like the way you broke up the line of trees and made some of them go behind the middle mountain. Good shadings.

Whoa Brian. . . .now that is one terrific landscape!! Those mountains and your fisherman doesn't look like a Gecko. . . . I am impressed!! I just looked back at my eraser landscape and almost fell off my chair laughing, but I did progress and I learned so much from Nolan it was quite the experience!
We were all so unhappy when it ended that we begged Nolan to do more. So now we are doing How to Draw Dogs and in January there's going to be his Live Pencil Drawing Classes.
You will do tremendously well in the course, I am sure of it, so carry on and keep posting your lessons!!
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Thanks, Bev.  I went back and looked at your erasing a landscape and thought it was excellent.  I browsed your work and it looks great!  Thanks for the encouragement!!
