Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ronald Swanwick's aim is to inspire the artist to go out and use a pencil at least as often as a brush. He shares his approach to drawing landscapes—teaching how to observe and soak up the atmosphere of a landscape, and opens the book with sections on composition, perspective and making marks and tones. Also, he clearly explains his language of drawing, in which there are only four methods of making marks—dots, lines, squiggles and washes. The mark you make and the tonal value you ascribe to it are used to describe the texture of a surface. Putting together these marks and tones allows you to build up a drawing to look like anything you wish. Drawing Landscapes has further sections on dealing with sunshine and shadows, drawing from photographs, drawing skies, trees and water and how to incorporate people and animals into a scene. Having accomplished these techniques, the reader can practise by doing one of two step-by-step projects.

Synopsis:

Ronald Swanwick shares his love of the landscape and reveals his techniques in this practical guide. Step-by-step demonstrations show how to compose a drawing, capture perspective and draw what you see.
