Learn to draw beautiful landscapes with a variety of mediums 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.

This art guide opens by teaching you the basics of drawing plants, leaves, trees, rocks, the sky, clouds, and water. In no time at all you will learn to "see" a subject through the eyes of an artist. You'll come to 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.
