Draw Landscapes from on-site Sketches
Capture a Sense of Place by Gerald F. Brommer

Brommer is an expert at mimicking the vitality and sense of liveliness of a place in his pen-and-ink sketches and he explains how to capture a sense of place with on-site travel sketches.

You’ll see how Brommer manipulates scale to emphasize architectural feature or crows of people, how he combines natural elements like flowers and trees in a garden with manmade structures to capture the complexity of the cities he visits. Brommer also explains his unique ways of working when deciding how to sketch a city, including finding vantage points that can be difficult but rewarding—like the curb of a busy street.

Brommer also delves into his methods of working when he doesn’t have a lot of time to work, including sketching a lot but making no effort to create highly finished European drawings. Instead, he did quick and sketchy pen-and-ink works and decided to add watercolor washes to the works once he was back in his studio, with surprising and enchanting effects. He also offers lessons on creating line sketches with minimal shading and the materials that he believes best suits this kind of art-making.

Sketching Trees
An Exercise on Seeing the Forest Not the Trees by John Hulsey and Ann Trusty

Drawing trees is a crucial part of sketching a landscape because these are a ubiquitous part of the scenes you will likely see.

You’ll find strategies for drawing trees including, “See, Simplify, State,” which is an artistic mantra on avoiding getting caught up in leaf detail and texture when drawing trees. Instead, when you are drawing landscapes and trees come into view, you’ll learn why you want to focus on the overall large shapes of the trees to do them justice in your art.
