Only include writing if you want to make this project more challenging and you are positive that you can do the writing in perspective.

(Do not copy the student examples. This is a DIRECT OBSERVATION drawing)

The above example has exceptional detail. The prescriptive is a bit off on the books. Can you see where?

This drawing is a good example with a wide variety of values and detail. The perspective is a little off on the Volume Library 2 book.

Just about every example is from a former student of mine.  Many thanks to them for all of their time and dedication.
