Landscape Drawing

A landscape drawing is a formidable artist’s tool for many reasons. For starters, drawing landscapes is an enjoyable process because you can be out in nature and enjoying its sounds and sights. Painters will often create preparatory landscape drawings before beginning a painting in order to work out issues of composition and visual interest. But learning how to draw landscape features such as trees, mountains, or beaches allows you to become familiar with how to deal with issues of texture, light and shadow, and proportion, all of which are cornerstones of strong artistic practice.
