Studies in the landscape

Part 5 Anne Kerr continues her six-part series, demonstrating how to draw skies, water and land then sets you a challenge for the coming month
This illustration shows a neatly trimmed lawn, while….

Until now, I have suggested you use either permanent or water-soluble ink. In the final two parts of this series I suggest you have access to both types of ink. You will need a fountain pen with a fine or extra-fine nib or technical pens Nos. 0.1 and 0.5. For a water-soluble ink pen, the Rotring Art Pen will suffice, however, any permanent and watersoluble ink pens with fine nibs will do.

Check that your water-soluble ink does not split into undesirable colours when wet. This can look rather odd in an otherwise strong black-and-white drawing. Choose multi-media paper, no lighter in weight than 200gsm or Hot-pressed watercolour paper. All the drawings for this article have been made on Canson 200gsm Multimedia Paper.

In the first four parts of this series we looked at drawing various features of the landscape and how to shade them to show shadows and textures. We now look at the bigger picture and place the individual features into the surrounding landscape. The first topic to study is the land itself.
