    Hi Dennis, so nice to get such positive comments, thank you! Although I am originally from Holland, I started studying physics in California, and might soon be moving to Italy to continue those studies because it's about a quarter of the price there.
    Tbh though, about the perspective stuff, I think the knowledge has been there for a long time, but recently I've been drawing more than ever so the skills are getting dusted off and refreshed a bit, and I think I'm simply trying a bit harder. I'm not a fan of drawing all the technical perspective lines when I just want to get an idea on paper, but recently it has been paying off a lot more in the end, in the beginning it's a chore to get the perspective right but once I'm done with that I can just relax and create and I end up much more satisfied with the final result.
    Thanks for the paintover, and though I realize it looks more sensible like that, I was trying to make the huts be more randomly positioned, since it's supposed to be a primitive village where nobody cares about urban planning. That's why I gave every hut a different vanishing point. I know something is still wrong so if you can figure it out, another paintover would be greatly appreciated!
    Ah California that's awesome! I understand you wanted all the huts to be angled a bit randomly but this does make the perspective a bit more complicated so I thought it might be better to simplify it a bit more to one point perspective. In that case when you give all the huts their own vanishing point because they're not perpendicular to one another you need to make sure that all those vanishing points still align on the same horizon line. In the overpaint you can see that some converging lines are crossing higher up than others, if you have multiple vanishing points they still always align on top of the horizon line, hope that helps!

    Duolingo says I'm 52% fluent. When I get there I'm gonna work on my language skills for a while before starting the regular courses.

    Soo, does that mean you hold one hand like this when talking?

    Thanks, I'll definitely be doing more of those, especially when I arrive in la bella Italia I expect I will have no shortage of subject matter to draw from life when I get to Florence, but that is still at least 3-4 months away unfortunately.

    Drawn out in the field, at Lake Mead. Had to finish the lower two flower studies at home from pictures because I was getting sunburnt...

    Great sketches, I have popped in her once and admired your bird on #2
    this time it's coincidence that I do it again. I love your studies I am
    not there with how you draw but really love your knowledge about shadow
    and light.

    Nice environments, they would however benefit a lot from more perspective practice

    Feel like I needed to take a break from drawing nearly every day, but I've also been busy with other projects, like making a website, writing, learning things. Back at it today with a google maps study of Brooklyn, NY.
