INTRODUCTION
There are many ways to draw a landscape these tips are what work 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 any thing 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 back ground 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 half way 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.
