Do you like drawing outside in the landscape? Do you find it hard to to decide what to draw and how to get the tones correct? This art tutorial will help you make those decisions. I explain how to create a viewfinder using a piece of card and a length of cord. The cord creates ‘thirds’ so you can isolate the best view for your drawing.
Want to know more about why ‘thirds’ are important in composition? The reason I suggest using thirds is that it aids composition, therefore creating a better drawing. using thirds has been used in drawing and painting since the time of the Ancient Greeks.
I also explain how to look for tones in the landscape and show you how to create a simple rule that will solve the tonal problem. This basic rule will explain how tones get lighter as they recede into the distance. It also explains that the difference between light and shade in the foreground is great, but in the background of the landscape the difference is so much less.
The video will help beginners, school children and those more experienced artists solve some of the issues surrounding drawing the landscape and develop their drawing skills.

Are you an Artist?
At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far. You also need the passion and the creativity to experiment and make mistakes.
Only if …
You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, and don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision.
