Hi, I’m Jack.


I am a self-taught artist and the creator of the Let's Draw Today Club!

My experience as a first-grade teacher has taught me the value of breaking big concepts down into small, learnable steps. That is the same approach I bring to my drawing tutorials.

Whether you are a beginner or you have a bit more drawing experience, it is my goal to make helpful, step-by-step drawing tutorial videos and courses that will allow you to easily follow along, create beautiful drawings, and build your confidence in your skills and abilities to draw things you never thought you could draw before.

I look forward to sharing my passion for drawing with you here in the Let's Draw Today Club!

Getting Started

Get started with an introduction to the tutorial, reference photograph, labels for the mountains, and materials used.

Draw the Landscape's Outline

Begin by learning how to draw the landscape with basic shapes, extra details, preliminary shading, and the base of the mountain.

Draw the Sky

Next, see how to shade the sky and create the clouds.

Draw the Left Peak

Then, discover how to shade the mountain in the foreground, draw distant trees, and shade the left mountain from peak to base.

Draw the Middle Peaks

After that, draw along with me as I add realistic shading and texture to the rocky middle peaks.

Draw the Right Peaks

Next, finish the mountain by completing the right peaks and adding shadows behind the slopes as well as extra detail to the sunny side.

Draw the Trees

See how to draw more distant trees at the base of the mountain as well as tall evergreen trees in the foreground.

Finish the Drawing

Finish up by shading reflections into the lake and adding finishing touches.
