Sketch methods of landscapes and still lives are identical, but with minor differences. But because the nature scenery has distinguished air of elegance and coquetry, we may not treat it like a group of still life as the preset options to meet their own needs. Almost all the natural scenery is naturally grown, all we can do is to look for and find in this ordinary scenery—to experience a great sense of beauty in a hut, a path, a pile of straw and a wisp of smoke.

We should pay special attention to several aspects as follows when conducting landscape painting:

1. Conception Landscape painting should first have a clear conception, namely, to create a mood. Everything else such as color, shape, and intensity of treatment are all around this conception. At the same time, we can also through such practice learn to use the scenery to express our own emotions, so that we can stand in a higher starting point at the very beginning.

2. Tone Grasping the tone is the key in making a good landscape painting. If a landscape is compared to a symphony, then the tone should be the main melody of this song. A careful analysis should be given to the color changes of the object, and the nature of a riot of color should be made into a unified tone, which seems to be a contradiction and it’s also the significance of our landscape sketch.

When grasping the tone, we must accomplish rapid action. First of all those complicated scene is divided into several large blocks of color, especially for those colors that are very close to each other should be departed to some extent. For instance, the difference of water and sky is also very obvious. 3. Level space The level and space of painting should be paid special attention. In general, a complete painting of the landscape should include far, middle and near scenes. The main scenery is often placed in the middle and near one is usually roughly treated.

4. Depiction of details The depiction of details should keep from a steep undertaking. Because the outdoor sketch usually has a certain amount of time, so we don’t need (nor) will focus on the serious depiction of scenery. We only need to draw the basic shape features of objects. More important is to try and understand the charm of the kind of pen.
