Drawing Landscapes

Have you ever been surrounded by such a beautiful landscape that you wanted to learn how to draw that landscape on paper? Landscape drawing is an enjoyable way to spend time and a great way to develop your drawing skills.

Landscape drawing is a fascinating area of study which requires an understanding of perspective, light and shade, detail and abstraction. Once you understand the rules of landscape drawing, you can choose to follow them, modify them or chuck them out of the window. Picasso did that... but, if you look at his early work, you will see that he understood the rules very well. Therein lies one of the many joys inherent in developing your landscape drawing skills - once you have the basics, you have the right to choose the path that you wish to follow... or, alternatively, get out the machete and carve out an entirely new trail.
