General | Latest Info

Landscape paintings also aren't necessarily limited to depictions of land. For example, they can also include images of seascapes, cloudscapes, skyscapes, riverscapes, or cityscapes. The main unifying element of any of these-scape artworks is that they all center around some kind of scenery. Landscapes can be paint plein air or from photograph. Plein air is a French term that means in open air. The benefit of plein air painting is that you can see the landscape right in front of you. You are already immersed and absorbed in the beauty of the scenery. There are, however, benefits to working from photography as well. If you work with photographs, you can work in the comfort and privacy of your own studio, without being dependent on daylight or weather. You can also take certain elements from different photos to create a unique composite landscape. For example, if you like the hill from one photo and the gnarly old tree from another photo, you can combine them into the same landscape. Then if you want to put flowing river in front of them, you can. You can also work from quick landscape studies or sketches. If you're out hiking and there is a lovely view that strikes your eye, you can easily whip out a small sketchbook or watercolor pad and use pencils, colored pencils, or watercolor to quickly make sketches of what you see. It often helps to write notes next to sketch, so you remember what color certain leaves were, or what shade the sky was. Oftentimes, these quick sketches turn out to be wonderful works of art in their own right! In this digital age, anyone with access to a camera can snap beautiful photos of a breathtaking landscape. There are thousands of heart-stoppingly stunning landscape photos circulating on the Internet. So, with such modern conveniences, why should anyone bother taking time to painstakingly paint something that can be more easily captured on camera? For lots of reasons! For one thing, machine can never replace the artist's hands, which work in conjunction with the artist's eyes and mind-analyzing source of light, examining the range of hues and tones, filtering mass of information and transforming outer vision into painted reality. Artists can use a variety of techniques within their chosen medium to add emotional undertones to work of art. They can choose wild, unnatural color schemes that are expressive and striking. They can take creative liberties to rearrange elements in a scene, adding something here, subtracting something there, to create a compelling composition. Their landscapes can be realistic, or they can be abstract or surreal. When it comes to art, possibilities are as endless as imagination. Landscape painting was a highly regarded art form long before the invention of the camera, and will always continue to capture the hearts and imaginations of artists and art enthusiasts alike.
