Kirkstall Archway session 3. Major revisions

Ok, so sometimes learning means going back and correcting… that is what is going on now.  I originally attempted to have the shadows be solid black and then pull out the mid tones and highlights  with white line… which worked nicely. However I also attempted to combine that with lighter areas being left white and then darkening their mid tones with black line…. the two were incompatible. Probably too much black linework was needed to keep things consistent and flowing visually. Anyway, I have made the decision to make all stone work black in this drawing and then push all the lighter areas with white line.  Now it is coming together.
