I thought it was the dark Tonal value missing Nolan. But now I'm not so sure  :-\
I added 6B to the dark areas.
Also, I think I need to do my tonal chart again. I seem to get variances between the many different brands of pencils & now that I've been practising more with my hand positioning & sharpening, I'm trying to let the pencil inform me of the tone, not my hand pressure.... If that makes any sense?

It’s looking great Trace!!.If you can just lighten  the  top wall of the glass under the rim on right hand side just a little bit more.Also the bottom splash lighten a touch more.

Beautiful drawing!

My eyes play a trick on me. If I look at the right side of the glass, I see the superior ring as being the front one.  But when I look at the left side I see the opposite.  I see the same in the reference.  My eyes, or the relation of the dark right at left corner of the rim?  Maybe it is correct, anyone else sees that?
Cheers, Annie

Thank you Zayn, Win & Marylou. This has been an amazing lesson on the small variations of tonal value & the perceptions created.

I've been struggling to accomplish anything in the great outdoors. It seems to overwhelm me.
So thought I'd practise the flowers exercise - Value & shading, lost & found lines.
Little realising how complicated the rose is, & now I'm really lost - Is this nearly finished? Do I have enough values? have I created lost & found lines that define the petals?

Thank you if you wish to give a comment/advice :)
Cheers Tracey
