We will study and analyse drawings and paintings by Australian landscape artists. Working from photos and images, we will discuss some traditional strategies used to understand and construct a traditional landscape. We will learn how to see and simplify the landscape, by using viewing frames to make quick thumb nail sketches. You will choose some examples to make a series of small copies in lead and coloured pencil using a limited palette, in order to understand how other artists have applied some of these strategies and techniques to convey the landscape.
