Helpful Tips for Drawing Landscape Worksheet.

The free worksheet at the bottom of this page and the project notes below may be printed by teachers and parents for personal use and classroom instruction.

OVERVIEW
Drawing is like any other discipline and needs to be practiced over and over to master it so draw every day. Come back and print off as many of my how to draw worksheets as you like, if you do them in a little while you will be surprised at how good an artist you have become. Do not get discouraged if the landscape in this project does not turn out the way you like, you are in the learning stages and your next drawing will be so much better. I have a lot of how to draw lessons to choose from come back often and try as many as you like.

HOW TO PRINT THE FREE WORKSHEET
  • With some printers, you can just highlight it and send it to your printer.
  • Some printers work better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Document then print as you would normally. (If you get a small image just adjust the margins from the page layout in the toolbar, then drag the image to enlarge it.)
  • Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there.
If you have problems printing see the "HOW TO PRINT" tab above or try one of the updated links below that should print better.

INTRODUCTION
There are many ways to draw a landscape these tips are what works for me.

HORIZON
As a rule do not put the horizon in the middle of the picture. If it is in the middle it just divides the picture in half and looks boring and like the artist does not have imagination. Put the horizon high on the page if you want to develop the foreground or put it low on the page if you want to have more sky.

The horizon may be mountains hills trees city buildings or anything that is where the land meets the sky.

THREE GROUNDS.
To give the picture realism have a background, a middle-ground, and a foreground. The background will be pale and lack detail. The middle ground will have some detail and a few colors. The foreground will have a lot of color dark areas and details.

THE GOLDEN MEAN
In every picture is a place of interest, some call it the golden mean. It is not right in the middle because that would be boring. Imagine the picture is divided in half then the golden mean would be a third way up from the bottom of one half and halfway across.

BRING YOUR EYE IN
Use a road, a river, a row of fence post, or the curve of hills to bring your eye into the picture. Your eye will follow the strong lines so they show you how to look at the picture.
