Beautiful landscape sketches for inspiration

Beautiful landscape sketches for inspiration. Everyone loves a beautiful landscape drawing easy, especially as artists. If you need to draw and sketch exotic meadows, woodlands, or mountains, it is important to look at some amazing local musicians to get motivation and get from. As part of the Sketching project, we celebrate and support some of the most talented artists on Etsy, the website that sells handcrafted items with skill and love, not at the factory. Please note that I am not an Etsy affiliate, so all recommendations are entirely mined, and I do not receive any cutbacks from the sale of any of these items.

Abstract landscape in black and white

This fun mix of fluid watercolor and elegant pen is equally intricate and straightforward. It is also exquisite and fun to watch. I bet my brushes that London-based artist Elena Blanco scribbled in any school book and magazine she could get her hands-on, and all that practice got her to where she is now.

What can we learn from this?

The artist used watercolor to create an abstract, unconstrained starting point to develop more figurative and precise sketches. Everyone should occasionally “drop the dice where possible” and then turn it into great art. I love this piece by German artists Inna and Leo from Curly Sheep Studio (which, I must add, is an excellent name for a shop). There aren’t many designs that can showcase a single bottomless object and hold my attention for that long.

What can we learn from this?

It clearly shows that both realistic drawing and abstract sketching in different parts of a single artwork can be a great idea, and you don’t need to choose just one of these approaches.

Foggy pine forest

Artist Eleisha-Jade Steadman spent 80 hours meticulously plucking to create this beautiful forest scene with a unique aerial view. Looking at the output is about as healing as it must have been for her to do it, and I admire her skill and dedication so much.

What can we learn from this?

The initial question that comes to creativity with this job is perseverance. 80 hours is a long time to work on a piece, but the artist had his eyes on the price and saw it through.

This inspirational design by architect Elizabetha Fox is equally beautiful and haunting. A dark, dilapidated farmhouse stands mysteriously atop a hill with a small cluster of equally shady trees. But the show’s real star is the tall, almost wild grass in the foreground, heavily bent by a strong wind. An effect, I think, that you created with an eraser on charcoal. She also gave the writing by hand, which is a gentle touch.

What can we learn from this?

A simple view can make an impressive piece by changing the viewpoint (from below, rather than eye level) and using that interesting eraser technique to create a moving pattern.

Lulworth Cove in winter

Pencil creator Ian Hedley must have used a great time making this accurate and impressive drawing of Lulworth Cove in eastern England. Not only is the theme itself very distinctive (it’s a popular tourist attraction), but the line quality and realism are also quite impressive. The bush in the view is so well done that you can practically reach out and feel it or run your thumbs over that piece of dry winter grass.

What can we learn from this?

Being a little adventurous with composition can pay off. Those bare twigs in the foreground create a jaw-dropping perspective and bring the viewer straight into the scene.

French castle on top of a hill

This fun semi-abstract sketch of a French castle in a mountainous landscape by artist Cindy Kuijpers is one of my favorite pieces from this collection. It is such a happy thought to understand. I love how she used some nicely placed brown paint spots and wavy lines, and she created this awesome animated image of hills and beautiful castles near the French border.

What can we learn from this?

Art doesn’t always have to be super realistic and if you don’t want to color within the lines (figuratively or literally), don’t. Have fun instead, you will shine, and your viewers will get carried away.

Scottish landscape

Edinburgh artist Holly managed to capture the wild and unbridled spirit of the Scottish hills with this fantastic pencil drawing. She separates the two prominent hills with different shading and lines, both inherently simple but incredibly effective. And I love the way she uses shading to add a pattern to the scribbles of grass in front of her, making it look masterfully like clouds moving above her head, casting those shadows.

What can we learn from this?

The line is as exciting and changed as the scene it depicts, and her system shows a big deal of knowledge and an opinion of the spirit of her name. Plus, Scotland is beautiful, in case you don’t know.

Minimal landscape

As a minimalist, I might be a little biased here, but I like a clean design. This fabulous sketch by Red Moon Design is eye-catching and very relaxing to look at. The simple color scheme, which still adheres to the principles of aerial perspective, makes the view seem eerily comfortable. The overall simplicity of the theme and the color gives the beautifully textured paper a chance to shine and add interest to the composition.

What can we learn from this?

Simplicity is not synonymous with boredom. Conversely, a clean and clear design can leave a lot of room for the viewer’s imagination.

Somerset with gold leaf details

When I looked for inspiration on Etsy, this piece by artist Emma Pinnock immediately caught my eye. I love the color scheme of natural grays and blues, punctuated by deep blacks and golds. The paper is handmade and adds something extra to work, but the texture of the lines, especially in the cloudy sky, is stunning. Also, note how your signature works with the overall design.

What can we learn from this?

Experimenting is the key to growing as an artist, and here the use of different mediums (pencil, ink, ballpoint pen, and gold leaf) to create a wide range of textures is exemplary.
