No colour so how would you capture a landscape? When creating a landscape drawing this is the challenge you are faced with.
Firstly choose a view that inspires you - perhaps you are sat in front of it or working from sketches and photographs.
Why Draw the Landscape?
Drawings are fresh and uncluttered. There is an immediacy about them. The changes in weather can be captured. The mood and feel of a place recorded. The movement of foliage indicated.
You have an opportunity to work out doors?
Secure some large paper to a board and using charcoal do some quick ten minute drawings. The results will be fascinating. Enough of the image captured but no time to be fussy.
