When you start drawing the landscape, you must begin to see it in terms of values—not lines. There is no reason why you, as an artist, cannot change the values you see' before you. A musician will take a group of notes and bring them together in such a way to make harmony, and they become a beautiful piece of music. So you will take a group of subjects—a farm, trees, mountains, boats, etc.—and bring them together to make a composition. This will take some planning and arranging. In this section you'll learn how to see the landscape as values and vignettes, and how to draw from photographs.
