Here is a Faber Castlell pencil drawing i have completed, also done free hand.  Your constructive criticism is always welcome.  At the bottom is the great photo shot my husband took a week or so ago for me to draw.   Pencil drawing is certainly a slow process.  I did it on acid free drawing paper 11x14.   For blending I used my pencil blender.  I did not do the trees dark so they can appear farther.

Danielle, I'm amazed at what you are able to draw freehand. This is impressive. Have you always been able to draw well or is it a relatively new skill?
