Day 30!

I'm 1/6 of the way through! 5 months to go!

Today I copied a few more landscape drawings but from the book 'Draw Landscapes' by Norman Battershill (see link in resources list) to get a feel of how to create different textures.

I then drew a landscape from this photo (found on

I mainly used a 3B and 5B pencil, my fingers for smudging and an eraser for adding highlights.

It's worth pushing a drawing further even when you think it's finished, and not being scared to try different things. Eg. I originally wasn't going to smudge the sky but it actually really works.

Time: 1hr 10 approx
