How to Sketch the Landscape Course
On the course you’ll learn how to quickly capture the atmosphere and mood of a landscape like an artist, and take the next step from sketching at home to sketching outdoors.
This course includes an introduction to the materials you’ll need and establish 7 practical principles for creating successful landscape sketches, combining drawing theory, on-location drawing demonstrations, and studio-based drawing tutorials.
