Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw mountains with a marker. So here's my marker. As you can see it's got kind of a thick tip. So we're just going to start at the bottom of our page. Say this is kind of the background bottom of our page. We're going to take our marker and just bring it upward and just make these kind of lines that go sort of jagged but kind of curved and there you go, there's our mountain. Now we can go back in and give it a little more detail. So we'll bring a line down here and we'll bring a line down here to show that there's kind of another mountain maybe in the background there and use two mountains here. And we can give it some caps so we'll just go in and color the tips, color some of the tips to show that these are snow capped mountains. So just go on to each cap and basically draw a little bit of color there and then if we want to we can add some little capped areas on other jagged parts of the mountain. And while we're at it, why not add a sun shining in the sky and some clouds and clouds actually are kind of drawn in a similar way to the mountains. And that is how you draw a mountain with markers.
