Annie, you might add a bit of value on the bottom of the tail because at the moment it does not look like it is part of the squirrel and ground him with a bit of a shadow.   The rest is actualy pretty good,  the photo is just a bit fussy.  Great job.

Here is my horse.  I will do the corrections recommended for the previous drawings after this post.  I just wanted to finish this drawing first. 

I simplified a lot the leader straps.  It was to intimidation to draw.   The neck is too evenly draw I think.

Annie you are doing really well with your drawings. Your horse looks young and fresh. I had a nightmare of a time with my bridle so i understand you simplifying it.  Its only practice that will make you feel more comfortable with your drawing. You are doing well. :clap:

Annie you did very well on the horse drawing, i realy like your main,  you should not let youself be  by the bridle, just try more tonal on it.  Once your try the full bridle you will love doing details.

you are doing very well Annie, especially the barn drawing :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Barn - the right hand window is a window with a shading / roof that swings upwards and is kept up by two sticks on each side. That gives the farmer a "shop" window, so just darken the inside of the window

Horse - I am not sure what the three dots on the nose are, but they are distracting, let's rather remove them. Then the hair on the mane are too straight which makes the horse look like he has had a hair cut, add some more flowing ones as well O0

Annie, your horse is cute!
Nolan, about the hair- it's like my grandson when he uses gel and spikes his hair, or how 'bout a 'bad hair' day'?  :)
Can't imagine how my horse will turn out!

I have done all the corrections recommended to the best I could. i just did not have time to post them, will do this week.

All improved, to my pleasure, except for the horse,  I haven't master the loose way of putting a few lines, here and there, and have them 'drop in the right place'... he looks like he had a bad hair day.  But his bridle and nose look much better.

Thanks for all the comments,  I find I learn as much from going back and doing corrections as I do with the original lessons... so without your comments I would only learn half of what I can.

 :thankyou:  :hug:
Cheers, Annie

Old barn:
Mea, I tried to fix the tree... but not good.  I think I will learn this is the Landscape Drawing course.
Nolan, I fix the opening, the dark space which I thought was a window.

Squirrel:
Danielle, I tried to 'attach' the tail, and to increase the values.

Horse:
Nolan, the 3 dots are gone... although I did not see them when I was drawing, so this was not intentional.
Danielle, I darken the bridle.
Nolan, Mea, well it went from a brush cut, to a bad hair day!!!  I will need to try the horse again.

Annie,

All your improvements have made your three drawings look better.  Good of you to persevere through this.

You are getting better with each drawing.
