Subtle differences in drawing and shading techniques allow artists to create a wide variety of landscape textures, from lush grasses to smooth stones. Beautiful Landscapes offers in-depth information on drawing landscapes in varied locales. Accomplished artist Diane Wright guides readers through the fundamentals of drawing in pencil, such as making basic strokes and using photo references, and on through 10 step-by-step projects featuring everything from a desert scene to a riverside landscape. As an added bonus, the book showcases landscapes from around the world, including scenes from Venice, the Netherlands, and Canada. With easy-to-understand information on tools and materials, basic strokes, shading techniques, and more, this 64-page book covers everything aspiring artists need to know to start creating their own masterful works of landscape art.
