Lesson Discussion

  1. Vid #4 gets to around 16 minutes and then won’t load further. I tried several times. I turned off my laptop and started over 3 x and it still gets stuck at this point. Anyone else having this problem, or is it just my computer?

  2. Matt, could you please give some indication of the size of your drawings? Clearly this beautiful landscape is quite small and size surely matters here.

  3. Hi, Matt. I really like your drawing of the barn and trees. About how long did it take you to complete the drawing? Just curious. I’ll put in as much time as I need to feel that my drawing is complete. Really enjoying this so far.

  4. I always seem to have a hard time trying to figure out a suitable background for a picture. I usually just hatch the background but I like the random tree look. Who knew scribble would make a neat tree!!

  5. This is the first time I’ve used pen and ink. I really enjoyed the lesson and I’m very pleased with the result of my drawing. I feel it has given me the skills to try my own landscapes in this way. Your lessons are magic Matt!

  6. Hi Matt – nice lesson! I noticed some of the marks are hatching but others cannot figure out. Are these scribble lines – how are you making these? I love pen and ink drawings due to the value contrast.

    Great Job!
