    Our eyes can trick us sometimes, that is for sure. You will get that handled, I believe that fully.

    Agerkvist thanks man, it's just the will to do it and practice, if you have that it will only take you some time to do the same.

    Madaoway thanks, don't know how often but I'll be making more B/W studies for sure.

    deepskysurfer thank you for passing by I really appreciate that.

    I'm sorry for the suspense.
    My first tries applying surface quality so I'll upload 19 and 20 with and without texture, but first 17 and 18 with surface quality applied.
    In this four studies I have used at least three superposed layers to create the textures. These are standard textures of photoshop and I made different adjustments in opacity, brightness, contrast and a couple times on shape too.

    The final surface texture has turned out to be the key factor in getting all the small variations in value around the ship right.

    19. I chose this "Unloading Stone from a Barge at Ouchy" to work in a brigter value range, to practice with the variation of elements and value on the ground in the dock and for both variety and repetition in the ship in the main focus that required quite an effort in precission and several corrections positioning mast, sails and ropes. The masts are not straight specially the first on the left is quite twisted, took me a while to see that and was essential to get the spaces right. The ground in the dock it's been a bit hard to do, a lot of tiny variations in value and many measurements to make.

    Edit: After applying the texture the edges on the lower area are more blurred.

    20.Chose this "The Red Umbrella" because reminds me of Oblivion and because I thought the wide value range from almost absolute black to white will look good in a B/W study.
    I found much nicer to work in the values and shapes of this ground here after the previous study, also found specially pleasant working on the lights and shadows hitting the trees in the main focus and on the ground and looking for those shapes and high contrast.

    Edit: I'm not convinced with the base of the trees in the main focus on the right side and the width of the path in that right side. Also I think I can have another look to the leaves and branches on the top right.

    Agerkvist of course you can make it but if I were you I would think in a longer time frame. The muscles on your arm and hand need the specific exercise of practicing for a long time to get the strength and learn to be precise, the synapses between neurons need persistence and time to optimize to the job you are pushing them to do, that's the learning process and there is no way around. You're obviously a proud father and you have the responsibilities of a rich life so you are not going to become also a super pro artist in a couple months! That would be very unfair dude!

    You're in the right place to learn (I wish i have noticed earlier), you're doing a good job on your thread, just give it patience and persistence.
