HERE IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE LANDSCAPE DRAWING INSTRUCTION BOOK YOU WILL EVER SEE!

Dedicated to my good friends and teachers at

HERE IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE LANDSCAPE DRAWING INSTRUCTION BOOK YOU WILL EVER SEE!

Landscape drawing has long been made mysterious and unattainable, especially the landscape drawing techniques mastered by the great classical artists such as Rembrandt, van Ostade and JMW Turner.

Taking the mystery out of Dutch Masters Drawing is what this book is all about, and you are on the verge of discovering for yourself how easy it is to produce great landscape drawings without the need for perspective and proportion!

Settle into your drawing mode now as we launch ourselves into the unknown territory of Dutch Master Landscape Drawing in the 21st Century!

Take the lessons one at a time as they come. Be comfortable with your initial crude attempts and give yourself the patience and time to develop the skills on the road to total mastery.

It takes some time, but within a matter of weeks, you will look back on your pathway and see the profound improvement.

Within a few months of daily practice you will find yourself producing the most amazing Dutch Masters Landscapes, and you won’t believe it’s YOU doing it.

So...let’s go! Be prepared for the greatest art adventure you have ever taken!

Let’s just start with a simple tree and a rough line for the ground. Note the light graphite lines for distant hills in the background. The wiggly line in front of the tree tells us that there’s a bit of water reflecting the trunk of the tree.

A Simple Tree

Now a seashore, with a rough sail-shape for a boat on the left, and a roughly sketched lump of hillside. Remember when drawing or painting a seashore that water always seeks its own level and that it never ever runs uphill or downhill — however, don’t obsess about getting it exactly right, nobody ever does.

At The Seashore

Now a bit of water in the middle — not quite exactly in the middle, however, and we’ll see in the book on composition why that is. A bit of vegetation and some lumps of hillside complete this simple picture. Don’t get hung up over detail, just get the feeling of the piece in your copy.

Rushes By The Pond

Try drawing the trunk of this tree with the side of your graphite LYRA 9B pencil and then dig in with some heavy pressure to create that feeling of dark shadow...keep the light source in mind as you draw. In this case, it comes from the upper left and quite far forward into the distance. The wiggly lines indicate that the weeds on the far bank are reflected in still water, perhaps a small pond.
