Landscape Sketching, Tips and Tricks
This course is for beginners in drawing and it starts with a very simple landscape. But step by step improving your skills finally you'll be able to deal with a three-point perspective sketch.
When you start to draw a landscape by yourself, the main question is: what to start with? how to start? I will help you to understand it and concentrate on what is really necessary to make a good landscape sketch. I’ll explain rules of measurement, composition, schematics, linear perspective, and all the sketching process step by step. Moreover, I'll give you a lot of tips and tricks saving your time and effort.
For example, in the process of drawing traditionally all the measuring have to be done with a pencil. But it requires some skills and it's very inconvenient for beginners. So, I offer instruction on the manufacturing of little measuring tool for sketching. I'll show you how to make measuring and counting with a simple strip of paper. My perspective grid system will help you to build up the orthogonal lines when the melting points are outside of your picture, far away from a sketchbook page.
Every step will be explained and every task simplified in many ways. Even my students with zero o close to zero drawing skills create lovely looking sketches starting from the first lesson.
I wish you happy sketching!
