Landscape Drawing Lessons

If you love landscape drawing lessons then you have got to watch these videos to see how easy it is to portray what you see. Landscape Fortunately, I found an artist on Youtube who has a brilliant way of explaining how to achieve certain effects in drawing.

This is the drawing I created while following his advice.

Along the way he shares what drawing supplies are being used and why.

I like this guy - he gives very simple instruction that's easy to follow and some great tips!

Below there are a total of 5 videos, all by the same artist.

Parts 1, 2 and 3 take you through each process step by step. The 4th video shows you how to draw a palm tree and lastly, you see a speed video (no voice over). It's good to watch in sequence and to see how all the elements come together.

Life just can't get better while you have these free online art lessons at your disposal.

How To Draw Clouds

While you are learning how to draw clouds, listen carefully because the artist shares some great drawing tips and techniques. You are also shown how to use a kneadable eraser for effect.

You've probably heard a million times to never put your fingers on your drawing paper but this artist clearly has no inhibitions about doing whatever he wants. Heh, this guy is after my heart because us hobby artists have no rules either. Be aware though, that skin leaves an oily residue on paper which eventually goes yellow, hence wrecking the appearance of artwork.

If you have a dial up or slower Internet connection, click on the pause button after starting the video and let it load all the way so the video plays through without any problems.

I became so enthralled watching these landscape drawing lessons that I completely forgot to draw! No harm done though, luckily there is a replay button :).

If you're ready, turn on your speakers and have your drawing paper and pencils handy. Let's start...

Step by Step Palm Tree Drawing

In this video, notice how he turns the paper around which makes it easier to draw with the flow of the wrist.

The palm tree is added in last so I was happy to see the addition of a spare piece of paper under his hand to protect the established drawing.

I love following the steps and listening to the artist. Notice how this fellow says "looks good enough to me", well, that is all you have to do - draw something until it looks right to you!

You are drawing because you love it, so always please yourself first and just draw from your heart.

You might enjoy the drawing videos more if you pause each tutorial at regular intervals so you can copy along at the same time.

The Finalized Drawing

Up next is a speed drawing of a beach. Now that you've watched the process in stages, this video shows how to put it all together.

Notice how the sun is depicted in the drawing, it's not represented by a circle which many people tend to do.

Turn your speakers off if you don't like the music, there is no voice-over in this video.

So now you have a better idea of how to put a drawing together. My thanks goes to Artist Pinsetter 1991 who has made it look so easy and he unselfishly shared a gazillion tips along with his time.

As we learn all new techniques to apply to our illustrations, remember this old saying...

"It is the stuff left out and not what is put into a drawing which makes it good."

When you don't overcrowd a drawing, you invite imaginations to conjure up interesting outcomes. When you portray a view and include only what attracts you, your artwork shines with your personality.

I thought these landscape drawing lessons were really easy to follow and the fact that they are free is an added bonus. Now you can go ahead and apply this new knowledge to all your future drawings - I wish you well.

There's more for you to enjoy...
