About this deal

In my composition design, I have made the group of trees the focal area and I have moved the tree closest on the left further forward in the composition as you will see in the demonstration. To avoid this I try to abstract shapes and observe all the different variations of greens: blue-green, yellow-green, brown-green and so on.

These were very often real views, though sometimes the compositions were adjusted for artistic effect. Various techniques were used to simulate the randomness of natural forms in invented compositions: the medieval advice of Cennino Cennini to copy ragged crags from small rough rocks was apparently followed by both Poussin and Thomas Gainsborough, while Degas copied cloud forms from a crumpled handkerchief held up against the light. This drawing features a group of pine trees surrounded by rolling hills that are so characteristic of the region of Northland in northern New Zealand. Chinese gardens also developed a highly sophisticated aesthetic much earlier than those in the West; the karensansui or Japanese dry garden of Zen Buddhism takes the garden even closer to being a work of sculpture, representing a highly abstracted landscape.As a landscape in the sense of a landscape drawing we understand representations of the environment created by nature or man.

The broad stroke method allows you to create a variety of uniform wide marks that are very effective at communicating realistic forms that you would find in landscapes. The only very complete example, the Spring Fresco is now in the National Archaeological Museum, Athens, but there are several others with only animal figures, surviving in fragments. The pencil strokes will remain visible on your finished sketch so you can use those to indicate texture too. I have broken down how I approached those landscape sketches, so you can get an insight into my though process. Firstly, we’ll look at curves and how closely-knit curves can conjure roundness, breathing life into your drawings.He was fascinated by atmospheric phenomena, the fall of light on trees, the formation and weathering of mountains, and the evolution of the courses of rivers.

Vedute is the Italian term for view, and generally used for the painted landscape, often cityscapes which were a common 18th-century painting thematic. Landscapes were idealized, mostly reflecting a pastoral ideal drawn from classical poetry which was first fully expressed by Giorgione and the young Titian, and remained associated above all with hilly wooded Italian landscape, which was depicted by artists from Northern Europe who had never visited Italy, just as plain-dwelling literati in China and Japan painted vertiginous mountains.

It is thought that the earliest landscape paintings were frescos (a type of mural painting) from Minoan Greece in 1500 BCE.Back in Spain, Haes took his students with him to paint in the countryside; under his teaching the "painters proliferated and took advantage of the new railway system to explore the furthest corners of the nation's topography.
