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.

  1. I guess that it must have taken you a long time to draw these lovely sketches of mountains. Mountains are fascinating, captivating and mysterious. They are described as pegs that holds the earth in the holy 'Quran'.

    The sketches are lovely and I like them.
