We had the misfortune to break down trying to leave Sacramento and looking for a cool place to pass the day while the repairs were made we found the Croker Gallery.Naturally I had my sketchbook with me.

another fabulous drawing Brian :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
What you want in each drawing is a full range of tonal values. Look at the tonal chart below:
Now compare each of the tonal values to those in your drawing. You will notice that those in the 2B / 4B range are under represented.This makes the drawing appear high key (very bright lights)
In order to keep the illusion of depth in the drawing you can darken the right hand wall and floor in the front, gradually darkening towards the back. This will add the extra contrast increasing the depth illusion at the same time O0

Thanks Nolan, At some future point I might paint this and took a photograph to help. The tonal range thing is a great reminder of ensuring the basics are incorporated.
