Capture breathtaking landscape scenes with skill and ease! Learn how to sketch landscapes in the field or from a reference with step-by-step guidance from artist and teacher Shari Blaukopf. Start with how to select the right supplies, find the focus of your sketch and orient your composition. Next, learn to paint the sky in all its gorgeous glory using wet-on-wet paint application, mark-making techniques and tips for creating perspective. Begin to bring your landscape features to life by breaking down the scene into manageable shapes. Once your shapes are sketched, you'll learn to add textures and details that will make your scenes jump off the page. Then, Shari will help you build value to bring greater depth and interest to your sketch. You'll even take a peek inside Sharis sketchbooks and get tips for capturing the same subject in a variety of fresh and illuminating ways.
Look out the window and you'll see that no two skies are the same. In this lesson, Shari shows you how to sketch four separate skies -- morning, neutral, stormy and skies with fluffy clouds -- each with its own unique challenges. Plus, learn how to use different marks to create depth in your drawings!
