Sunday I sat in my back yard and drew a few of my favorite views.  In the first one, I remembered how important it is to relate the vertical lines to the edges of the page - so many of my drawings are crooked on the page (tho easy to remedy with the computer).  I left out all the leafy shade on the patio choosing not to mess up the cleanness of the foreground.  The second one was tricky in not getting lost in all the zig zagging lines back to the horizon.  Darker in the front and moving back to light light in the back helps things in front move forward.  The last one is done on gray paper with a new white Sharpie pen that is pretty worthless.  It melts into the page!  That may be better than dominating the scene however...
