Read from the Book

By taking out the element of color and relying instead on just the pencil to craft a beautiful landscape, you can focus on the foundations of any great work of art—form, value, and design. Your greatest challenge in drawing a landscape is to not become distracted by the details, such as the leaves or blades of grass. Rather, stay faithful to the size, shape, and proportions of the major components of the scene. In the pages that follow, I will show you how to develop a landscape, from starting very simply to building up the forms and adding texture. As you follow along, I encourage you to allow your own special drawing style to develop naturally. —Diane Cardaci
