WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Sketch pad or Art Diary

  • Sketching pencil

  • Fineliners

  • Ruler (or something with a straight edge, book maybe?)

Using your sketch pencil and a straight edge, draw in some construction lines to help guide the rest of your artwork. Draw a line from the centre of the top of your page to the bottom. Draw a line from the centre of the left hand side of your page to the centre right hand side.



STEP 2: DRAW A DIAMOND

Using your construction lines draw a diamond as above. It should be around 20cm high and 15cm wide.

Draw a smaller diamond inside the first diamond at a distance of around 1.5cm.

STEP 3: DRAW IN YOUR MOUNTAINS

Draw in 3 mountains using the image above as a reference. The mountains should be a little craggy but try to keep the lines quite straight rather than wavy to keep the geometric style going.

Draw some shadow lines too as above to make the mountains look 3D. Draw in a little circle at the top for the sun using your art liner as a guide if you like.

STEP 4: ADD YOUR FINE LINER TO YOUR EDGES

Start going over your edges with your fine liner as above.

Once you have all of these lines in its time to start getting really creative with your pens.

STEP 5: START ADDING YOUR FINE LINE DETAILS

Use your fine liner to create vertical lines in the background above the mountains and random length vertical lines at the bottom of the lower triangle as pictured

STEP 6: COMPLETE WITH HORIZONTAL STRIPE DETAILING.

Its easiest if you turn your page 90 degrees to draw in some horizontal lines on the 2 V shapes and the shadow lines in the mountains. Finish off by making the lines for your edges thicker to stand out.

Now time to show it off. Or do another one?
