Hey guys, this is Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a wheat field. So basically when I'm doing landscapes I like to make them a little bit hillier, so what I'm going to do is, I'm going to start, take a starting point and do a little bit of an arc there, so you just have a line that's arcing a little bit, and another one that connects that goes the opposite way. Now I'm going to start doing little kind of flareups in the back here, these are the wheat that's furthest away, because when you're looking at landscapes and you're looking at vantage points and things, things that are further away from you tend to be seen very, very small, so you got to make sure that things that are going to be in the foreground are going to be a lot bigger and things that are further away are going to be a lot smaller. you're going to keep kind of going with this format just following those lines, making them bigger as you get down the rows here, and do the same thing on the other side. And just make sure you keep it really full, and you can use different colors if you want, you can use like golden oranges, pretty much whatever, because a lot of wheat when you look at it, when you're looking at a wheat field in real life, maybe it's glimmering in the sun, there's a lot of very golden colors there, so just make it as rich as you possibly can. Alright, so now that we've got our basic far away landscape, we're going to start doing some of the closeup wheat, so basically you're going to start just doing a couple lines here in the front, and this is the stuff that's going to be the closest to you. They don't all have to be perfect, you can just really kind of just mix them, I'm just making sure that they're kind of like going all over the place, because wheat is a grass, and it grows at very irregular ways. So at the top it you're going to kind of do some flareups, and those are actually the greens that are in the wheat, so you're going to do the same thing on each one. Now if you want you can use some different colors on this, really it's up to you, just it's great if you possibly can, and you're going to do that all the way to the side. And also a lot of times, I have one color marker, but if you are using multiple colors, you can make things that are closer to you are going to be a little bit darker as well, so things that are closer to you are going to be bigger and darker, and things that are furthest away are going to be a little bit lighter, they tend to be. You're just going to kind of fill this out here. And then if you want you can also add like a sun or something, just kind of smiling down, and some rays, and he's shining light on the wheat field. And there you go guys, that's your basic wheat field, enjoy.
