Drawing Hills in Landscapes

 

EPSON MFP image

With the soft contours of rolling hills, it is more difficult to distinguish the main masses of light and shade which emphasize solidity. It helps to look at the landscape with half closed eyes.

In contrast to the sharp angularity of mountains, most hills have soft, slightly blurred edges, because they are covered with trees and vegetations. If the hills are covered with trees, it is enough merely to suggest the texture of the foliage by using a subtle range of textures.

The overlapping planes of the hills recede works well in the design of a landscape.

The principle when drawing distant landscapes is your best means of creating the illusion of three- dimensional space on a flat piece of paper.
