In landscape art, water is often an essential component of the scene. Water may appear as waves crashing against rocks at the seashore; movement of a stream flowing through a forest before dropping into a waterfall; ripples spreading outward from a tossed stone or a horse taking a drink; rain falling from the sky, dew drops on a blossom; mist and clouds as part of the changing weather, even snow and ice of winter. This course will introduce the artist to drawing techniques using pencil, pen, charcoal, blender, and eraser applied to a variety of paper textures that will capture the features of nature found in landscape art. There will be demostrations, followed by practice and feedback by the instructor and students. You will leave this course with information to sharpen your skills no matter what your medium.
