Thanks for the tip Steve.  When I got done with the barn, the front two corners were not straight at all.  I did my best to straighten them a bit but the side wall of the barn was just too far done.  In other drawings I've done the same thing, for some reason I draw my vertical lines at a slight angle.  I will have to make sure I catch it earlier on in my future drawings so I can fix it before I get to far into the drawing, or try to make sure I'm getting it right as I progress through the drawing.

Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement.  :thankyou:.  Anyone have any tips on making sure vertical lines are vertical when doing it free hand?

Hi Clivus,

Hold your pencil with a "candle" hold. That is, hold it more towards the base of the pencil and as if you were walking with a candle in you hand. Also, keep your arm off the paper and support and move it at the elbow. Keep your wrist rigid. I believe Nolan covered this in one of the earlier tutorials. And, most importantly, just keep practicing. Use your sketch book and sit down one afternoon and just draw squares, rectangles and boxes. Before you know it, it will become second nature. :)

Just break the halo effect of the tree behind the house, it hugs the shape of the house too much, so just adjust it by heightening the tree O0
