    Beautifully "drawing" OR "drawn" pictures of seascape

    Dear Teacher(s),


    Fairylord would like to clarify as subjected in Title:

    The attendees to the art exhibition admired Reza’s beautifully _________ pictures of seascape.


    The answer should be drawing or drawn (participle) ?

    In this context, "drawing" is noun whereas "drawn" is participle, isn't it?






    Regards,

    Reza's beautifully drawn pictures.
    Reza's beautiful drawings of the seascape.

    "drawn" is an adjective here, whereas "drawing" is a noun.
    In the first sentence, you already have a noun, "pictures", and the word coming before it has to be defining "pictures", therefore you need an adjective.

    I see, thank you Teacher Elif.

    I have another question on the statement of the "drawn" is an adjective here.
    Teacher Elif, "drawn" cannot be adjective without beautifully incorporating, am I right? Hence, the adjective here should be "beautifully drawn", correct me immediately if I'm wrong?


    Thank you, Teacher Elif.
