Sketches of Mt. Everest and Mt. Machhapuchhre

I have made two sketches of the mountains which we, especially the people of Nepal, pride upon: Mt. Everest and Mt. Machhapuchhre. Both of these mountains lie in the Himalayas, that is, northern part of Nepal. However, the Himalayas stretches beyond the territory of Nepal. India and China both have some share of the mountain peaks in the Himalayas, but the heart of it falls in Nepal.

Sketch of Mt. Everest

This first sketch is of course, Mt. Everest, the top of the world. It's the highest peak of the world with the height of 8850 metres and many people climb this mountain every year. Apart from that, it's image is included in our currency and our national symbols. Therefore, Mount Everest (also known as Sagarmatha) is rightly the pride of our country.

Sketch of Machhapuchhre

This second sketch is of Mt. Machhapuchhre. Mt Machhapuchhre is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Annapurna Mountain Range. It is known as Fish Tail in English, as it literally resembles the tail of a fist. The word Machhapuchhre is a Nepali word which translates into Fish Tail in English.

I completed both of these sketches within 30 minutes each! So, it seems like I have finally understood the real meaning of sketch (a quick rough drawing work). And if you would like to see the sketches of more and more mountains then click this link. I have published a lot of my sketches of mountains there for you to practice drawing them.

Aloe Vera is indeed a very beneficial plant and it has many health benefits and cosmetic applications. It can be especially beneficial for anyone who wants to take better care of their skin and beauty since it can be applied to skin and hair directly.

Now, being back to this sketch, it's an easy job which you can also practice doing. It didn't took me long to get this sketch. That's why I called this one a rough quick sketch!

Tips for sketching mountains:
  1. Hold the pencils loosely in your hand.
  2. Vary the tones by changing the pencils from 2B to 6B.
  3. Make the mountains more zigzag and then only they will look like real mountains. Otherwise, they may look like a triangle.
  4. Use some sort of reference, such as a photograph or a real object, to draw the picture. And before you begin, study the photograph carefully. Read the shapes and lines. Make up your mind about which aspects you will emphasize. Ignore the part which is difficult to draw but doesn't add any value to the sketch.
  5. You can add your own creativity to the reference.
  6. Leave the white space for the snow! This is quite important.
  7. Do not overdo the drawing. Once you have roughly completed a sketch, proceed to the next sketch. If you try to improve the same picture then you may spoil it instead of improving.
  8. Lastly, learn from your mistakes. Mistakes are common, and so, take them naturally. However, do not forget to learn a lesson from each of them.
