Landscapes

Landscapes are pretty hard to draw if you don’t know what you’re doing. But if you do, it can be easy, which also depends on your skill level.

So, for landscapes, you need a reference picture. You could go outside and try drawing what’s in your backyard or something, or you could search up β€œLandscape” on the internet and try practicing using those pictures as reference.

For landscapes, you need to have a few things for it to qualify as a β€œlandscape”. First, it needs to have a horizon line, which is where the land meets the sky. Second off, you need a vanishing point, which is where the foreground β€œvanishes” from your view. It’s basically where the details and such get smaller and smaller until you can’t see them anymore, and it’s like that in real life too.

So, now that you’ve gotten prepared, it’s time for you to start drawing. You can use guidelines to help you know what and where things will be. Around the horizon line (not too far away from it) is where you need to draw your land. Add details such as trees that get smaller when they get closer to where it ends up adjacent to the vanishing point. Using rulers could help with getting straight lines, if you’re drawing a city or something along the lines of that and you need buildings or houses or anything like that.

Landscapes can be commonly used as backgrounds by artists in their drawings. Some people draw landscapes for fun. But landscapes are important in art as well as anything else. Landscapes, like colors, give the art character, and could possibly tell more of a story about the art.
