Presenting a late evening sketch. At present I feel compulsed to do something everyday. This is a P & I with line wash of a garden scenery.

Absolutely, Gita, this would be perfect as a line and wash.  So skillfully drawn.

The shadowing looks great.  On the flowers, you can achieve the shading by use of color washes.

This is going to be so beautiful when colored.  (Beautiful already!)

Looks great, Gita! Maybe a little darker shading on the vertical shadows in between the curved wood and flat wood (more or less the center of drawing). Right now the shading is so similar it's difficult to differentiate between the vertical and horizontal shadows.

Very nice drawings!   :clap:  Great idea to do a few photocopy and try different colours.  Now, do you have to colour wash all elements of it?  For example, if you wished, could you wash the flowers but then either not was at all the fence or do it much much lighter?

That was I was wondering with your first one.  Sort of like making a more defined focal point.

You have a good routine with trying to draw a bit every day after work.  I admire you  O0.  When I work all day, I am totally pooped (hope that's the correct word) and can only do a bit of reading.

Yes you could add more ink, or you can use the colour washes to create more shadow/shading. Just a matter of preference. OR... flip a coin!  ;)
