My last day of art class was on May 11 and there are a few leftover drawings that we haven’t put up until now. The above drawings are examples of landscapes which I drew on toned paper. I used colored pencil and most of them turned out alright. The great thing about landscape drawing is that it gives you the power to capture the essence of a particular place. For instance, one of the drawings above is based off a photo from our vacation last year, and when I look at it, it brings back memories from the trip. Landscape drawings can be used as a kind of artistic journal in a way.
The two drawings below are from my sketchbook. The one with the plants focuses on backlighting. When an object is backlit, it means that most of the light is coming from behind. The other one is really just a study on feet. There’s really not too much to say there.
