This is good, almost an optical illusion.   :clap: :clap:

beautifully drawn tree with lots of texture :congrats:

Just add a touch more contrast (darker values) to the bush bottom right, he is currently in ninja mode O0

very good drawing Tracey :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I actually think you have the rims the correct way around because your eye level in this drawing is lower than the rim of the glass so you are in fact looking up at the rim. In that case you would be looking through the glass at the lower back rim. What do you think?

 :thankyou: MaryLou. & Nolan. I see what you mean Nolan... haha Ninja mode is a great description. It was my attempt at doing the spinifex grass that surrounded the tree. Like the white hairs on animals I need lots of improvement  ;)

in a case like this when the object itself is light, you use your artistic license to give the background enough contrast for the object to stand out O0

This is the reference pic. To me it seemed as you have said Nolan, but the more time spent drawing it often had me caught in that optical illusion of which rim is which. I wondered if I darken the space between the 2 rims may have resolved some of that, but i thought i would probably muck it completly, so left it as is.

Looking at it with Nolans (Correct) view, as we are looking through the glass I would lighten the furthest rim ???   :-\

Its very good Trace, and you have it correct, but my humble artists eye suggests you look closely at the dark line around the rim of the glass in the reference photo and darken your shading accordingly, especially noting the sides.
Not sure if that makes sense 😉

Lovely interesting tree Trace. Well done.....Did you compare it to your first tree you drew(if you did) at the begining of the course.

I also want you to compare the tonal values of your drawing vs the reference. Tell me which tonal value is missing
