Realistic Scenery Drawings
by Philip Edmondson


Let me introduce you to Philip Edmondson from York, UK and his beautiful realistic scenery drawings gallery. We have only a few so far, but I believe new drawings will be coming in soon.

Since Philip is from York UK he has chosen for his drawings this awesome countryside in Yorkshire, probably one of the most beautiful in the UK. The sceneries truly look almost unreal, as if we go back in time hundreds of years ago. Pure magic!



These fantastic village sceneries that are fortunately not destroyed by any “new-modern” urbanistic mishandlings.

Having this luxurious exterior of Yorkshire for your scenery drawings is a real gift. Watching only the photos makes me forget about the time, and just gazing endlessly.

It seems that any corner in this countryside is suitable for scenery drawing. Probably one of the best medium you can use for this is only a plain HB pencil.

Phil used exactly that, only a plain pencil. That is why his drawings look so awesomely simple and beautiful.

An ordinary pencil drawing has its magic that is incomparable to any other medium. I would say, pencil drawing is a king. If you draw the very same drawings on the black paper, this time using white pencil, all sceneries would be instantly turned into a night scenery.

That might be the reason why all great and famous painters in the past were very eager to mastering the pencil drawing techniques as first. It is like learning an alphabet before you start reading texts.

Drawing architecture has its special magic. It is like weaving a dream and the only limit is your own imagination.

I like very much how Philip placed some human figures into his Garden Conversation scenery drawing. Did you notice, if there is a human figure in some scenery drawing, it instantly gives life to the whole drawing or painting.

That is most likely the reason why old master artists since Italian Renaissance and earlier almost always drew or paint their artwork with human figures. It is a pity that nowadays this is not so common.

My guess is that drawing human figures well requires mastering this whole discipline. It has its rules and is very learn-able, but only very few people are willing to do that because it requires work, work, work. It very often requires a tedious work which only a very few are willing to undertake. Good job Philip Edmondson :)

Garden Conversation

I love drawing architecture in all its forms, I put a couple of people in this picture supposedly chatting about gardening, just to add a bit of a story.

Helmsley village, Yorkshire, UK

A village I used to live quite neat to in Yorkshire UK

Southport Sailing School

I used to live in Southport on the west coast, and this old wooden building really fascinated me.

Japanese vase with Stones

Inspired by a photograph I found. I liked the textures of the ancient vase most of all, and wondered if I could emulate it.
