Landscape Drawing Images and Tips


Whether you're drawing a realistic landscape or creating a fantasy world, using reference sources, either from real life or photographs, is a useful way of making sure that your drawing looks convincing. Trusting our memory often results in a 'caricature' landscape that looks 'almost' real - but not quite. Use these landscape images as references for drawing projects by themselves, or as a jumping-off point to get your own ideas flowing. Each image includes tips on how to handle the landscape elements in the picture, and some are supplemented by closeups for more detail.
