Studies in the landscape

Part 3 Anne Kerr continues her drawing the landscape series with a look at techniques to render walls, gates and fences


How to draw manmade objects in the landscape

What to leave out and what to keep in your drawing

Learn to draw texture patterns

In parts one and two (LP January and February 2019), we looked at how we can use the basic shapes of blocks, cylinders, spheres and prisms to represent some of the features in the landscape. We looked at using cross-hatching to make our drawings three-dimensional. We now move one step further and introduce texture patter ns to make our landscape features even more realistic.

Hopefully you tried drawing the selection of texture patterns I introduced last month. I also suggested that you tried inventing some for yourself. Always use patterns that will enhance the texture of the object. Let the pattern depict the outer contour of the object; no need to draw a hard line around it. Remember that, although we may now start to use a variety of marks to form texture patterns, we still need to keep our pen strokes consistent in some way, for example: size, spacing, direction or thickness.
