I am an artist, a teacher, a dad and creativity is something I apply to all of those things. For 14 years I was known as Mr Mac the art teacher, getting teenagers amped up about making and learning from them as much as they learnt from me.

Then in 2017 I did something I had dreamt of in those ‘what if?’ moments we all have. I stepped away from being a secondary school teacher and I put on my artist hat full time. I have pursued my love of organic, flowing patterns, diving into painting, drawing, making a beautiful mess with dyes and printmaking.

In my Feilding studio I follow a few different creative pathways. I might pick up an ink pen and let my mark making lead me to some intricate doodling. Native birds take flight – my pen imagines their song and nau... See full profile

1. Introduction to landscape drawing: Hey guys, join MEC minimum here. In today's class, we're gonna be learning about how to draw a landscape. I'm going to teach you some of the skills of perspective drawing. That's when things disappear into the distance and they get smaller. So there's a certain style of drawing, it's called perspective drawing. So I'm going to teach you about how to do that. And then we're going to draw a really cool, I'm Scottish farm scene with a really cool old stone cottage in a farm gate. So yeah, this one's gonna be fun. So I hope you guys got everything you need and you're ready to get started. 2. 1. One Point perspective: So the first thing we're gonna do is I'm going to teach you something about how to draw in perspective. Now, I don't know if you guys know what bespeak diverse, but perspective is when things disappear into the distance, they get smaller as they disappear into the distance. So I'm going to teach you guys how to draw that. Okay, so the first thing we're gonna do is we're going to do a couple of kind of practice pages before we do our real thing. So the first thing we're gonna do is up on the top corner, I want you just to draw a little box, although square, sorry. Okay, so use your ruler. Doesn't matter how big it is. And draw a square like that. Okay? Starting off with the square, Pretty, pretty simple. Now, trying to try and keep up with what I'm doing here guys. So what we're gonna do now is we're gonna, we're gonna put in a vanishing point, emits That's like in the distance, the thing in the distance. So you see where my square is? Up on the top right-hand corner, up here somewhere. We're just gonna do a little dot. And just beside it, right? Vp. Okay, and it stands for vanishing point. Just a dot. Okay? Now what are you going to do is you're going to roll lines from the vanishing point to each corner of the square. Okay, So watch the screen, watch the screen setup here. And you're gonna rule align back to that corner down here. I'm gonna give you guys a minute to catch up because you've probably stressing out right now. So you're gonna do that for all three of the corners that are facing towards the vanishing point. Alright, now these are cool perspective lines. Okay? So when you draw perspective lines, they have to go back to the vanishing point, the VP. So don't do any lines that go off into nowhere. They have to go back to the vanishing point. Okay, Good. So that's pretty, that's pretty basic. We've just got to a square. Now if you look at that, if you squint your eyes, can you imagine that? That's like a long piece of wood and you're looking at the end of it and it's disappearing into the distance. You guys get what I mean. Cool. Alright, now we're going to turn it into a cube, okay? And this is how we do it. We're going to draw the side of the bulk of the cube. So you start off with your roller on the side like this. And you just slide it down a little bit. And then you roll, you draw a line here between those two lines. Hopefully you guys can see there. Let me just actually zoom in a little bit on this so you guys can see this, but Is it a bit better? Yeah, cool. Okay. So that line there is on the same angle as the frontline. And then you're going to do the same at the top. You're going to start off with your ruler in line with the box, with the square and slide it up. And then draw that line like that horizontal. If you've got an eraser, you can actually rub out some of the perspective lines that go back to the vanishing point like that. And then you have a cube. If you've got there, give me a thumbs up. If you're with me so far. Yeah. You can put them up on your video or you can do an emoji. Nice, awesome, good, good work team. So that's the basics of drawing in perspective. Okay, Now here let's add something else to this. If we're going to add in a horizon line here, alright? And I'm just wanting you to roll a line like halfway down your page, just ruler line, like this. I'm going to zoom back out a little. So you guys can see my whole page. This is your horizon line. Now, you guys know what a horizon line is. You know, when you when you're at the beach and you look out and you can see like with the sea meets the sky, that's called the horizon line. Alright? Now the vanishing point is always on the horizon line. That's just how it works. So what we're gonna do is up over the side, we're going to draw another, another shape, but let's just do like a rectangle for the shape. So we'll do like a long shaped like this. Okay? Rectangle shape. And this time the vanishing point is going to be down here, on the horizon. Down here, like off to the side. And we're going to rule the lines from each corner down to like this, down to the vanishing point. All right? You guys see what I'm doing? You can't see it. Okay, that's cool. If you just joined this fine, you just, you just have to catch up. So we just start off with the shape and we're rolling lines from each corner down to the vanishing point. Now, let's make this shape into not just like a, like a really long one. So start off by taking that frontline, the bottom of that rectangle, sliding down. I'm just slide down a little way. Actually. Just wrote draw that line in. And then on this side it goes up vertical like that. Okay. And you can rub out some of the, rub out some of the perspective lines. It's a good idea when you're drawing the perspective lines. Don't draw them too hard because you're going to be rubbing them out later on anyway. Okay. So what we see with this shape here, we're actually looking at it up in the sky. It's like imagine this like a giant floating platform up in the sky. And we can see the bottom of it because it's above the horizon line. Does that make sense? You guys with me? Okay, cool. Okay. So there is called one-point perspective where you just have one single point in all the lines. Go back to that 111 like that. Alright, that's cool. 3. 2. Two Point perspective part 1: Now that's not the only way to draw in perspective is actually another way and that's called two-point perspective. So what do I need to do is flip over your paper or get another pace if you want to get a new piece. Alright, we're going to draw this in 2 perspective now. Alright? So we're going to start off with our horizon line, which is about halfway across the picture. Okay? Now, for two-point perspective, while we do is we have two vanishing points and we're looking at the side of the corner of the object. So roundabout here, what I want you to do is draw a single line like that. That's like a vertical line. Okay. That goes across the horizon line. Make it closer to the left side if you can. And now we're going to put in a vanishing point on this side. Okay? And we're gonna just do a little dark, right? Vanishing point. You know the deal. From the top and the bottom of the line. We're going to rule our perspective lines back to the vanishing point like that. Okay? Now, don't be stressed out if this is, if this is true myth and medical for you and you don't like doing maths. Then now we're gonna get into some sketching soon. We will be doing some freehand drawing as well. But this is good for learning the basics. So then on the opposite side this time with your vanishing point, with your second one, make it quite further out along the line to the ene. So it's a longer distance. Okay, and then line it up. Drop your two lines like this. You should have kind of a weird almost a kite shape on its side. Give me a thumbs up. If you guys are still with me. He runs, okay. Okay. If it's too hard, then yeah. You might you can go back and watch it later. Okay. That's fine. Okay. So now what we have is the corner of an object that's disappearing into the distance on both sides. Okay? Now what we're gonna do is we're going to roll a line like this, a vertical line here, that's the side of the building. We're actually drawing a building here. And then on this side, same again, roll another line vertical and rub out the horizon line because you can't see through this building. Okay. So imagine that it's just like a block house. Do any of you guys play Minecraft? Probably some of you. Okay. Okay. Really quickly we don't want you to do is turn this block, this block here into a house. You can draw anything you want to turn it into a house. Okay, so I'm going to draw like a door then withdrawal window. Now, one of the things I didn't actually tell you is that all the vertical lines are vertical, but all the horizontal lines go back to the vanishing point. Okay, so my window actually looks like that. Give it its got straight up and down sides. But the top and the bottom are lined up with the vanishing points. So the top of my door slammed up like that. Once I've done that, I can draw whatever I want. I can draw like a door handle. I can draw like Part of the thing. They can do some flowers around here. I can do a path coming off like this. It looks a bit weird without a roof, but yeah. You guys get what I'm trying to say. Okay. Now, on the left-hand side of your building, if you haven't drawn anything on there yet, we're gonna do some bricks. This is, this is pretty easy. What you do is you start off with you, make sure your role is lined up with the vanishing point. And you just roll some lines like this that go down, down the building like this. Can you guys see what I'm doing? See all those lines. Angle back to the vanishing point there. Yeah, so make sure that you're all the lines. You use, your ruler, watch my, watch my movement. The rule that goes fans around like that, but it's always connected to the vanishing point here. Fans around. Okay? Okay. So what we're gonna do is pretty soon we're going to move on to doing our main picture, but we'll probably just do a little bit more practice on this, on this perspective thing for now. Okay? So that's how you draw like a building that you're looking at the corner of the building. And you can see both sides like that. 4. 3. Two Point perspective part 2: Okay, so same setup again, guys. So we're starting off with this sum. We're gonna do the horizon line a bit higher. So do it up about a third of the way up your page. Okay? And, um, what we're gonna do here is we're gonna do a, um, we're gonna start out vertical line our corner. Down near the bottom. Case, there's quite a big gap between the top and the bottom. So just draw a vertical line about that big. And then we're gonna put in at two vanishing points, VP, Vp, one on each side. Hopefully you guys still with me. Then we're going to rule from the top and the bottom of each line, sorry, top and the bottom of that line, back to the vanishing points on each side. She should end up with a shape that looks like kinda like an arrow pointing down. When you've done that, you can just hold it up and show me in the camera so I can have a lot yet. Oh, yep. Good. Okay. Good. Yeah. Good work. Awesome. Yeah. Alright. Good luck team. Yeah. Thank you. I think you're up with it. I think you're getting it. If you're falling a bit behind or you're finding this hard, then don't stress about it. You can come back to it later on. Now those are the two sides of our shape going back into the distance. But we don't want it to go all the way back to the distance. We want to actually make it into a shape. So decide how big you want your object. And say I'm going to draw my vertical line here. I'm going that far back in same on the opposite side and roughly You got my two lines here and here. Now here's where it gets a little tricky. From this one. You've got to draw from the top of this line to the opposite vanishing point. Okay, so this one goes to this side. And this one goes to the other side. And see what happens. You can darken up all your lines if you want. So from the object, you can rub, rub out the extra perspective lines that we don't need anymore. He should have an object looking something like this that I'm showing you on the screen now. How are we going, guys? Is that working? Yeah. Natasha is iPhone. That's not really working as it yet. Good Lady, Lady, Lady. It's good. Lily. Good. Maggie, infant. Good. Being enjoyed. Just make sure those sides are nice and vertical. So the sides go straight up and down. Okay. Make sure they don't curve out. Laura can't see yours yet, but fuzzy. Mayor, Good evening, Elizabeth. Good. All right. Good work team. Okay. So while we get while people are catching up, this is like a little podium, isn't it? So what can you draw that standing on this podium, can you make something up? What would be something cool that standing on there. I'm going to draw like minds like an Olympic person. Spiky here. I didn't know what kind of sport they play, but there could be like maybe they like a javelin thrower and they've got a really long javelin and the hand. Okay, cool. You can draw something funny on there if you want to. Okay. So hopefully, hopefully you guys have got that idea. So if we recap, if we go back to the beginning when we talked about this one is called one-point perspective. So that's where you can see the whole front of an object and the sides are disappearing back to one vanishing point. Okay? And if you guys can imagine, let's say this horizon line here is like, there's mountains like this. Can you guys see my picture? And imagine this is the vanishing point. And there's like a road like this. You see that? So you're driving along the road and the road is getting smaller and smaller disappearing into the distance. Here. If we had like a tree here, and a tree here will be smaller and a trace here will be even smaller. So as things disappear into the distance, they get smaller and smaller. Okay, so this idea of perspective. And then we did the two points where you've got, you can see both sides of the object. And that's good for drawing like buildings and stuff. And then we prefer to say it again with the podium. 5. 4. Drawing a landscape: Alright, and we are going to be drawing this picture today. Can you guys see that? All right. Yeah. Now, can you see why I taught you guys about perspective? There's two things that are in this picture that we need to use perspective on. Can you see them? So one of them is the, one of them is this house thing here, which is like it's like an old stone cottage or something cool like that. Yeah. So if you look at it, you can actually see that the horizon line is back over here. And then the roof kind of angles down like that. You can't really see the base of the house, but it's sort of angles up. Okay, So that's, that's that idea of perspective. So we're going to try using perspective to draw the house and then also see this gate in the front. See how we can see one side and it gets a bit smaller as it disappears off that way. So we're gonna, we're gonna use some of those new skills that we learned to try and draw this really well. You guys ready to go? Guys? Cool, awesome. So starting off with the HB, we're going to start off like really lightly. So don't press too hard. Otherwise, it'll be harder to rub it out later on. Okay. The first thing I'm going to draw, hang on. I might set to zoom out a little bit so you guys can see, firstly, I'm going to draw it as the horizon line. Hopefully, you guys can see they all kinda, kinda, okay. So in this picture the horizon line is roughly halfway. It's a bit hard because there are some hills. So these hills come up above the line. So we're just gonna do it like about halfway down that picture. Okay, so start off with a line. Then what we're gonna do is we're gonna just draw the the front of this house here. Okay. So see how the house is on. It's probably like and about 1 third of the way across the picture. So we're gonna guess it to be about here. And we're going to roll a line really carefully like that. So this line here is basically going to be that line there on our house. Sorry, I'm finding it a little bit. There we go. That's better, isn't it? Now you've got it in your screen. So that's our first line we're going to draw. Now, a vanishing point is gonna be off here on the side. So do a little dot like way out on the right-hand side. And then remember how we do it. We're going to roll that lines back to the vanishing point from the top and the bottom of each line. Now, don't do it too hard because we will have to rub these out. Now. The yeah, we'll just do the vanishing point on the other side as well. Okay, so we've got our vanishing point like this and our lines going like that. Cool. Now, we can't see as much of the end of the building like this, this part here. So we're just going to kind of to the side about there. And the sides maybe here. Okay. What we're gonna do now is we're actually going to stop using the roller now. Put your ruler away. And we're just going to start sketching it in. Okay. Oh, sorry. There's one more bit that we have to use a rule of four and that's for the roof. Okay? So what we're gonna do is the angle of the roof comes up like this. And then the top of the roof goes back to the vanishing point as well. Okay, So you basically just draw like roll a little line like that. I'll do it all the way so you guys can see. Once you've got this far, we're going to start sketching it in. So to sketch it in, you're going to look at this, this end, but this kind of Viva here, upside down V, it's gonna be like this. You can use sort of sketchy lines. Now you don't have to use like really sharp lines. And you guys see how there's like a little chimney on top of the house. So that sort of goes up from there. There's another one on the other into a little chimney bit. 6. 5. Drawing the gate: So now we're going to look at the rest of the picture. Okay. Do you see how we've got this gate right at the front? So what we're gonna do is we're going to draw the gate. Now. The gate goes pretty much from the bottom of the house, almost to the bottom of the picture like this. So we're gonna go a little bit over. We're going to draw the gates to sketch it in like that. Okay, so that's like the one that front posterior that we're drawing. And then we're going to use the same vanishing point for the gate. So we're going to draw it from the dots from the top of the gate to the bottom of the gate like that. Okay. You guys are still with me? You're not with me. You cut out. Okay. I am sorry. Covering the drawing up. Okay. Well, we've done so we've got the house. First of all, we did the perspective on the house. Now we're doing the gate because that's the other bit that Scott perspective. So we draw the front posts and then we do the vanishing, sorry, the perspective lines back to the same vanishing point. And then we've got 123455 things on the gate. So we're going to do 1231234. Oh, I didn't do enough. I need to do two in there. The gate doesn't go all the way to the distance, so it's only going to go about this far. And so what we can do is once you've got that rough shaping the earth AND gate, you can actually rub out all of the perspective lines that you don't need. And we're just left with the shape of the gate. 7. 6. Drawing the hills: Nice. So now we're gonna go back to, we're going to start using are copying skills. Okay? So you notice how we'll start off with the landscape. So you notice how in the distance we've got this nice rolling hill in this valley, but we're going to draw that in. So up above, this is like a kind of rolling hill that comes down. And then there's a bit of a big hill that comes up like like that. You guys can you guys can kind of do that however you like. So if it's not exactly exactly like I have it in my picture, then that's fine. So a nice big hole here. And I guess the fact you can't really actually see the horizon, the straight horizon. It's a little bit confusing. All right. And what else we got going on in front of the house, we have this kind of grassy area. Mean is there like a little bit of a long grass and it is a bit of short grass. Here we have this little block wall here, don't worry. It's a bit weird. How are we going to draw? How are we going to draw those blocks? You guys got any ideas? 8. 7. Drawing the stone wall: So what we're gonna do is we've got a blog post here to sketch it in. And we're going to have a short grass here. Long grass here and there. The lawn grass actually comes up right in front of the house. So we're going to cover up the bottom of the house. We'll do, we'll get into the details and texture later on. And then I guess the blocks is kinda like this. It's like random random shapes with some grass coming up in front of it. You guys seeing what I'm drawing? Yeah, they're kinda like bricks. Bricks alike. They look all the same. You know, they're like, oh, the same size. These blocks are like kinda random different sizes a. Okay. Now, do you guys remember back to, um, remember back to the very first session that we did and we talked about, um, how to do tone. To remember that there's only like two weeks ago. So you should remember that. We talked about like how to make a shape look 3D. Alright, so let's just kinda zoom in a little bit on this and we'll see if we can see if we can do a bit of that kind of tonal stuff on the, on the blocks, just on the blocks. 9. 8. Adding tone: So if you've got like a six B pencil or for B, you want to grab that? And the easiest way to do it guys, is just to stop, like go round the outside of each block and make it a little bit darker around the outside. And keep it nice and light on the top of each block. So I'm just doing some really light shading. The front of the block is pretty light as well. But you can see these really dark areas here in-between each block. So you see how I'm getting quiet dark in here, in-between each block, like a little shedder. Okay, So keep kind of sketching it in. And if you wanna get quite detailed, you can work on the texture. So there's some really interesting like moss texture that's happening all around it. So you can do that. But we probably won't go into that much detail today. So you can see these blocks that'll look a little bit rounded. Hey, that's what we're going for. Sort of a little bit darker around the edges and lighter in the middle. Do you guys think we should do a bit of smudging on these blocks as well? Probably. Okay, so just use your finger. Give it away, smudge, get it a little bit gray. Nice. There's a bit of darkness here underneath that grass. So you just send to this area here so you can sort of add in some darkness underneath that grass. What we'll do is when we do the texture layer, we'll come back and we'll do this long grasses right in the front. We'll add that in, but for now, don't worry about it. Okay? Alright, nice, cool guys. You're doing really well by the way, just keep, keep it up. Alright, so let's have a look at the house. Now. If we look at this house, you can see how there's some like really dark, this one dark side. So this end piece here is probably the darkest side. This other wall is the medium and then the Rufus lighter. He's got some like old moss and stuff on the roof so that makes it look darker. But what we can do is we can add in some of the shading on it. Okay. So just remember that the roof comes down about here, past past the edge of the wall. Same width down here. Go. So we're just going to add some shading in here on the side of the house. So I can like probably a fourth tone, not super dark, but just pretty dark. Then we can go really dark just underneath the end of the roof. Is it creates like a nice shadow? Yeah. I'm not sure what it is. I think there's like a door anything in the I think it's just like kind of concrete block wall. It's actually another little there's a little sheet coming off the side of the earth. You can see straw them and if you like, Cool. Okay, and then on this other wall, we should probably draw this a little bit here. I so there's like another bit sticking out with the doors. So it goes like this little extra raphe bit. There we go. Kinda like that. And actually that whole, that whole side of their butt is quite dark tone because it's facing the same way as the end wall. You can do that really dark. And then most of this is pretty well, just a lighter tone. Just like that. I'm still doing this with my six B because that's my softest pencil. So that's making that kinda look a little bit soft. And you can do a bit of smudging to if you love doing that, that's fine. Okay. Now, do you want to see a cool trick for how to do the roof? Because we want the roof to look sort of like, you know, like roofs are made of like corrugated iron. Because now a corrugated iron is it's like a wavy kind of roof pattern that site. Wavy, wavy. So what you do, Here's a little trick. You basically just line up your pencil. Used to heaps of lines, everyone watching the screen. Yes, there are heaps of lines and arrows. So like this, make sure they're going along the same angle as the roof. You see that? So now we've got all those lines which kinda tell us, oh yeah, that's a roof. And then you can add a little bit of shading into that roof as well. By the way, I do those lines with like a like an HB or a to-be. Even if you want to go. You can do those little lines are also on that little side roof down here. There we go. That looks cool. 10. 9. Drawing the gate in detail: Let's actually look at a gate. Now, what I'm gonna do, I'm just going to fold my pictures so that I can fit it on here. Yeah, there we go. That's better to see. Cool. So let's have a little closer look at our gate. We're going to sketch it up with the HB pencil. Okay? So what we've got is we've got the lines to start us off, but actually we need to, we need to draw them properly so we can sketch it in. Now, you've got to just do each little bit of wood as you go. So one, the top. We've got a nice diagonal one going down on that way. She sketched it in the end, we're going to have 1234561234, while I've got too many lines here. So if we start, we do the bottom one. So that's the top and the bottom. 12123 in the middle. Guys are just too many lines. Sorry about that. Sometimes you just have to check it and then counter and you figure out what you've done. Okay, So one, 23. So when you're just a sketch in those those fits pails, what are they called? Fence would fits wood. And you notice too that the one on the angle is in front of the other ones, isn't it? So you've got to draw that one on top in front. I'm just going to you guys should be able to see that real nice. Good. Okay, cool. So now what we're gonna do is we're going to add some tone in here. So do you notice how along the top of each of these fence pails there's like a lighter line and that's because the light is hitting the top of it. Okay? So when we draw it, we're just going to leave the top line a bit lighter. And we're going to add some tone to the other ones. It might be a little bit hard to do just to kind of do it their detailed but just see if you can. Okay. And it's like these feet spitzer, quite dark and crusty. They've got like moss on them and gross stuff. Probably some shapes. *** bags. Yeah, nice. There's actually another isn't there another cross piece going behind it? Can you guys see that? It's pretty hard to see. So I'm just going to draw that in, but I'm going to make, keep it really light in the background. Cool. Alright. Now I'm one thing you can tell is that there's some shadows underneath these fields pile. So see these bits here, these bits here and shadows. So we have to just do a little bit of shadow along here. And what that does see how that makes the middle ones stand out more. That's looking alright. Alright. Now this is actually a dark line under that because there's a shadow under there. So we can draw that dark line all the way down on that sideways, on the angled one angled panel. And there's some other dark but in this side of the fence. The gate as well. Okay. 11. 10. Adding more tone: And there's another shader here because there's a shadow between this concrete. This is like a stone post. In the wooden post is like a dark shadow here. So it didn't. I guess the trick with this kind of drawing guys is that you have to just have the picture and you have to look really closely at it and try and copy that what you can see onto your picture. Alright, we're not going into too much detail on that because I don't want to get bogged down on the gate. Now, we've actually got another little, um, another little block wall here. So we're just going to sketch that in this, in blocks. They look quite rounded actually there. I don't know where this is. This might be an England. So it looks like an English farm scene, doesn't it? Okay, so you just sort of sketch those blocks and then you can start to shade them in as well. So there's some really dark bits here. And then it's lighter on the top of each block. If you don't get this whole drawing finish, there might be something that you want to, you can work on later on, finish it off in your own time. But I'll try and show you all the little bits of it so you know what you're doing. Okay. There we go. Okay. Moving right along, guys. You've been going really well. We've actually been going for like 15 minutes, so you've only got ten minutes left. The next obvious thing for me that I can see in this picture is this whole tree. We've got this awesome like little tree right here. So how are we going to draw this trade? Do you guys have any ideas? I know Jason crazy, I only ten minutes to go. We're just going to draw it. That's right. So if you guys have a look, the tree almost as an almost in line with the fence that the side of the fence here. So we're just going to come up from there. We're going to start off. See, it's actually goes taller than the house. So we're gonna go up and you'd start off with the trunk. So you just start off with a line going up. I'm going to sort of figure out, okay, I've got to, I've got branches. In fact, I wanna do this. I want to do a really basic shape of the tree. Then I'm gonna kinda go, okay, cool. We've got these branches coming out. And trees. I don't know if you know this about trace, but trees always gets smaller as they get down to the leaves at the end. So they start off really FET, FET trunk and branches gets smaller and smaller down to the twigs. And then what I'm gonna do for the texture on the leaves, I'm actually going to do just little circles. Okay? So you just going to draw heaps of little circles. You might do a little squiggles or little lakes, like whatever you want, whenever you thinks the right sort of thing. But I reckon it's like a circle each tree. Okay? Once you've drawn a bet, you can kinda rub out the basic shape. So we don't want that lift on the interior much. Cope. And then don't forget to do some circles in the middle tube is there's branches facing towards us. Just sort of cover it up and bronchus coming down. Alright. That looks kinda like a tree, doesn't it? Sort of. Yeah. I guess it does look like a tree. Okay. 12. 11. Drawing the grass: So we're just gonna look, we're going to start off with are two types of graphs. So this is the, another idea about perspective here guys. So when something is close to you, it's way bigger, okay. And when something is far away, it's smaller. So for the, for the grass that's really close, we're just going to do big long lines like this. Now I'm using my HB pencil. Just going to do long lines like kinda flex. Guys see that and just notice the direction of the grass case. Some of the flux are going like sideways. Some of them are going straight up. Alright? Once you've got that emotion, that flicking, you can do it faster. You can go like this. Try not to scribble, just do like one line at a time. Okay, So one long flicker at a time. Nice. We probably need to add a bit more shading underneath as well. But we can do that later. If you want to just start off with those long grassy flux, then if we look at the medium-sized grass, so this grass in here, it's gonna be quiet, small, little, small flecks, but they're kind of clumped together. Okay, So, so this still flex because when you do a flick, you end up with a nice sharp at right at the end of your flake. But it's like in a clump. So it's like maybe like teen little bits together. Can you guys see that? Okay. So that's going to take awhile to do all those little medium grasses. And you notice how I'm at the bottom of some of these clumps of grass. It's quite dark, so we've got to add in some more shading as well. So you just have to kinda look at the picture and figure out where it's dark and where it's light. Or dark patch over here. And the medium grass kinda goes all the way up to the building to sort of going in front of the building. Now can you see grass that's really far away in the distance? Eureka. Kind of, but not really. I mean, you can sort of see it but you can't really draw it like grass. So you just have to sort of add it like texture. So it might even just be some tone or even smudge. You can smudge it. You could do some dots that might work for faraway graphs. Tiny little dots that can be really fun actually doing keeps the dots. Okay, Let's have a look. If we look on our wrist seat over the rest of the picture, we're going to have some more kind of medium clumps of grass here. With the shadow at the bottom. We've got some really fine grass down the very bottom, but you don't really need to draw that. 13. 12. Drawing the sky: That's fine. The last thing I want to show you guys is how to do the sky. The sky is really about heaps of smudging. Okay, so just let me zoom out a bit so you can see the whole picture. Hopefully that's where it hold on a second. Hi, Yeah. Cool. So notice how in our sky we've got kinda like our gray, like quite a gray moody clouds over here. And then we've got some kind of other bits over here. So we're just gonna do that with our six B pencil. And we're just kinda like very, very lightly put some tone and the sky. And then we're going to smudge them with a finger. Okay? You really want to smudge heaps and the sky. Especially when you've got like a big rain cloud like this, you want to get some pencil toned down and then just go nuts on the smudging. See that, see how it's gone. Really nice and soft and gray. Because clouds are really pretty well. Soft. They're not like really hard lines are really nice. They don't stand out much. Yeah, there we go. That's starting to be good. So then I can just kinda keep building up. Building up over there. Okay. It's fine to leave some of it like unfinished as well, like that kind Parkinson they mostly white if you want, and just looks like a sort of a cloudy day over here. Obviously, I haven't really drawn all the details through here. You got like all these hills and you've got like all these little clumps of grass around here so you can keep adding in. Just like I never noticed, is like a second little gate over here. Cross. You can add that in. It's up to you how much detail you can add in. The windows that are up here on the house is like another like a side door happening there. Okay. So those are things that if you want us to be more time working on it, you can.
