In this post I will describe different compositions for drawing pen and ink landscapes. In pen and ink tutorials, we looked at drawing different elements individually in detail. The next step is to understand how these elements can be used together in different ways to create effective and pleasing landscapes. This is done in the following pages. After going through the following, try drawing one of your own. You can find many more examples in easy pen and ink drawings.
In addition, I have video demonstrations of compositions covered on my YouTube channel. These videos are appropriately linked in the following pages and can be used to understand the themes and techniques used in detail. I will regularly add new videos to my YouTube channel and you can subscribe to my channel to be notified of any new addition.
