Explore and respond to the work of Ansel Adams, creating original black and white pencil landscape drawings of the Sierra Nevada.
Ansel Adams is known for his photographs of the Sierra Nevada, where the Sierra Club was founded by John Muir. Adams's work, exquisite in both its grandeur and detail, is powerful and awe-inspiring. His photos demonstrate a strong sense of composition and clarity. Study several of his photos of the Sierras. Choose one that shows great space and contains interesting shadows.
On white paper, lightly sketch the landscape in Adams' photo with a black Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencil.
Using a black Crayola Fine Line Marker, draw over your sketch lines. Fill in areas that are in shadow. Silhouettes are solid, and lighter areas remain white.
Research the plants and animals that live in the area for authenticity. Add details that contribute to your drawing, such as figures or trees.
