Just keep practising!

This is my second challenge from Different Strokes from Different Folks. I tried to work on the tonal quality of the buildings receding into the distance. I thought I'd failed miserably but now I look at the scanned image, I can see that I have managed to get the buildings to look like they're going into the distance. They really are a challenge these DSDF pictures.

I did this EDM picture with my new watercolour pencils. I like the way I seem to have more control over them - I'll enjoy experimenting with these.

Yes, You are doing well with your CWPs. Nice soft early morning haze. Your lines really bring you into and around your subjects.

You did a fabulous job - This photo was too scary for me to try, but I saved it for future practoce sessions.

The city drawing is really good! The dark-to-light colors creates a vivid depth. I love that camera :)

I like your DSFDF city-scape very much. I haven't started mine yet! I'm a little intimidated by all the good entries so far. Talk to you later.
