Landscape Outline Drawing: Phil Metzger

In the March and April 2010 issues of The Artist’s Magazine, I share with you the steps in my thinking and process as I develop a landscape drawing from the initial sketch to the outline drawing to the finished piece, Sky and Fields (graphite, 8×10), shown below.

In the fourth step in my demonstration I did a final outline drawing on Strathmore bristol plate-finish (smooth) paper (shown below). I made the lines darker than I ordinarily would, so you can see them.

I view copying as an excellent way to learn and practice drawing (and painting) techniques, so I invite you to copy any or all my drawings in my books and magazine articles.
