Composition Skillbuilder for drawing a Landscape

This is a short post with a few ideas about composing a landscape. It is ideal for a young artist who wants to draw a picture of the countryside but doesn't know where to begin. 

Here is an opportunity to improve your abilities to sketch a landscape.

Choose your compositional form steel yard, "L," or Golden mean. Steelyard is a balance between a large object and a smaller object opposite. "L" is just as it sounds like, there are large objects forming a shaped like an "L." The Golden mean is a point of interest that is beside and lower than the center.

Decide on a horizon line, anywhere but center. Choose a background like mountains, hills, or trees. Add clouds and trees bushes and details, you should come up with some ideas on your own; look through your photos, magazines, and calenders to get inspiration. Fill in the spaces with texture like grass.
