Morning all. Here are my next offerings!

I’d never heard of scumbling before but enjoyed the technique.

Then the barn – now I’m getting into my stride and took great delight in doing this one. This is an area that interests me. However, I felt my window was not quite right perspective wise. I may have added too much dark to it?

Another area I would like to expand on is drawing animals, so I was really happy when I got onto doing the squirrel. Enlarging with a grid was really interesting and Nolan was very good at describing how to use it. What a fantastic way to draw when you’re not confident enough to do it freehand! I think this will be my route for future drawings. All comments welcome.

As always, my photos seem lighter than the real drawing. Perhaps I need to go outside to take the photos in future!

You can actually darken the barn window more - the darker the better as far as getting the looking in effect is concerned O0
