Printable How To Draw Worksheet, Mountain Lake With An Island In It.

This free printable worksheet offers an approach to creating a picture when you do not have any reference materials to work with. It will help give the young artist some confidence and direction in drawing a classic landscape. It is a simple project and ideal for the young artist or extra drawing practice.

Parents and teachers will be able to use this in class or at home. It can be a lesson by itself or an extra activity to fill in the time. It can be given as a take-home project.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:
Learning to draw takes practice so if your project does not turn out the way you had hoped it would do not give up. Your frustration is a good sign that you have talent and know what you want your picture to look like. You only need to get your skill up to the level of your talent. So draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back to my blog often and try some of my other projects.

PRINTABLE NOTES
Start with a light pencil. Use the scribbling technique to come up with ideas for the picture. Scribble the background mountains. Draw the line for the distant water's edge and use an oval for the island.

Go over the scribble mountains by choosing the lines that make it look like a mountain range with different ridges and shapes. The distant mountains will be lighter and have less detail. The near mountains will have more detail and be darker. Scribble in the rough trees on the island and give some interesting shapes, like rocks, to the island.

Continue to develop the picture by adding more texture and shadows to the mountains, trees, and water. Add the trees on the far shore with up pointing strokes of the pencil. Add darkness to the island and trees. The water is darker closer to the bottom and lighter by the distant shore.
