This is your chance to learn to draw realistic landscapes in a variety of mediums, including charcoal, graphite, pastel, coloured pencil, and more!
Learn to draw beautiful landscapes using a variety of tools and materials, including graphite, charcoal, pastel, pen and ink, and colored pencil. Drawing Landscapes for the Beginning Artist offers the perfect introduction to the basic tools and techniques necessary for creating realistic landscape drawings.
Starting with the basics of drawing plants, leaves, trees, rocks, the sky, clouds, water and more, learn how to "see" a subject through the eyes of an artist. Understand basic perspective and proportion, and then observe the interaction of light and shadow to add depth and color to your drawings with value, contrast, and shading.
Techniques are broken down into simple, easy-to-follow step-by-step projects so that artists can practice their own landscape drawings and apply their newfound knowledge to create realistic, proportionate landscapes in any medium.
