not a landscape
Since I drew this standing up, holding the sketchbook. and left out at least a dozen trees, I'm claiming it's a still life object, not a landscape.
Though maybe including a big boulder muddies the category. I'm slowly trying more architecture drawing, but hate all those ought-to-be-at-least-somewhat-straight lines (as I refuse to use a ruler for sketching).
I drew this house as though each rectangle and triangle were puzzle pieces fitted together.
And I liked how the graphite smudges and the scanning edge-darks created a gray toning, making the white areas glow.
