Hi, I'm Rosalie, and I'm an artist. And, I'm going to show you how to draw simple background scenes. So, a background is just something that's behind, you know, stretching back into space. So, for a simple background scene, I'm just putting some long grass. This is just, like, a grassy ground. And, I'm just doing that with vertical lines, basically vertical. And, I'm just sketching them in like you see here. Just going to make sort of a grassy area. This is a grassy background, you know, just grass going off into the background. And then, here in the sky I'm going to put some clouds. I'm just making those with rounded lines, just sort of sky back there. And, you could even sort of fill it in more, because it's going all the way back. And, you can put a sun, why not? Just have it be there. Do the radiating lines if you want, you don't have to. And, I think I will put some birds flying, which I just do with real simple little shapes like that. They're just in the background, very small. And, that's how I draw simple background scenes.
