5. Finish With Shading
Finish the landscape with careful shading. The darkest shading blackens the bird and the space between the horizon line and the mountain tops. Add a cross to each of the windows for window panes. Draw a dot on the door for the doorknob. Use diagonal lines for lighter shading on the tree trunks, the side of the house, inside the water barrel, and on the pump itself.
Your landscape drawing is finished! Even if you don't get it right the first time, keep practicing until you're happy with your drawing.
