Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist, and today we're going to be drawing hills in the background. So the first thing we're going to do is we're going to start with our kind of foreground area. There we go, there's our foreground. Now with the hills in the background we want them to just kind of vary from here so take about from the middle and draw a line that goes out and then go into that line a little bit and then maybe we can add another, just sort of a swerving line that goes to the other direction and basically we can just keep doing this and we can draw as many hills or mountains as we want. We can have them get bigger. We can have them be kind of small, maybe blend in with the other hills, maybe put a big mountain up here too and maybe add another mountain here if we want to and we can just keep having the hills go farther and farther into the background. You can also just keep them very easy. So say this is your foreground, you just want a couple little rolling hills, just add one here and maybe one there and there you go and then you would add say your sun, maybe some clouds and that is how you draw hills in the background.
