How to Draw a Realistic Landscape, Draw Realistic Mountains

Step one:

Before you draw something you want to draw, sketch it first! I used water-soluble graphite pencil as well as Derwent Inktense pencils on watercolor paper to draw my sketches. There is more information about both of these on my website under my “Art Supplies” section. I began by drawing the landscape using water-soluble graphite and then lightly shading with an charcoal Inktense pencil.

Step two:

Then I used my brushes and water in conjunction with my pencils to complete the sketch. You can try to feel how the mountains and the landscape flow. Do not try to achieve perfection.

Step three:

My second sketch is taken from another perspective of different mountains, however it follows the same process.

Step four:

I completed my brushes and water once more. The most important thing I learned to take away from the sketch is that the mountain ranges that are the furthest away tend to fade away and then lighten up into the background. The principle will be brought out in the final sketch.

Step five:

The final sketch was drawn by hand using Inktense pencils. I started by sketching the entire sketch out in blue. Then I lightly added yellow and red to give hints at the other colors. The final color was created through mixing three of the primary colors with white and black.

Step six:

Then I completed my sketch the same way like the white and black ones. Following three sketching sessions, I considered that I was prepared for the final sketch. So, let’s get started!

Step seven:

I started by choosing my pencils. I employed an HB pencil to do drawing and shading and a 3H pencil for the simplest lines and shading and a 6B pencil to create dark shading.

Step eight:

Begin by applying some sort of gradient shading to your paper using an HB pencil. Shade and blend your lines with the mixing stump.

Step nine:

You can erase your mountains in the top part on the illustration. White erasers work well to accomplish this. Then, darken and blend into the sky with an 8B pencil as well as the blend stump.

Step ten:

Utilize an HB pencil gradually shading the shadows on the largest mountain. Make sure to shade in a an even direction rather than just sketching. Then lightly shade the mountains to the left.

Step eleven:

The mountains should be defined on the left. Blend the shading of your previous step using a blending stump and then eliminate the bright areas. Use a 3H pencil to define your shadows. Then, begin to draw the outline of the mountain’s top using an HB pencil.

Step twelve:

Get started on defining the most prominent mountain with more confident shading using the HB pencil on the shadowed part. Make use of a 3H pencil for the lighter, snowy side.

Step thirteen:

Complete the rest of the shading of the mountains. Make sure you blend the bottom to the mountain as is possible so that they appear sort of blurred. When your mountains are finished, make use of the HB pencil to draw in some hills in the background.

Step fourteen:

Utilize an HB pencil draw trees. Look at those trees that are in background, making stubs of trees disappear in the mist.

Step fifteen:

Shade in the main tree with an HB pencil. Shade the corners with the pencil 6B.

Step sixteen:

Shade the tree in the top with a pencil of 6B to help it stand out more. Blend with the rest of the shading. Complete the drawing by adding elements here and there, primarily for the backgrounds and the mountain ranges. I hope you enjoy this drawing. As always, your comments and questions are welcomed!
