The landscape painting is often the first genre most folks think of with art, and for good reason. An age old genre where artists portray the essence of nature, landscapes can show many different settings, such the ocean, jungles, mountains, rivers, beaches and forests. When I paint a landscape I am painting the portrait of a place, and I see locations in nature as characters with a host of unique moods and stories.
Where normal portraiture can be accomplished by including the single figure, landscapes can be far more complex in choosing which elements of nature to include. Even a bare field and sky can take on a variety of moods and characteristics, as there are two elements not one. I often take a widescreen approach to include different elements, and will typically include a background, foreground, and middle ground to convey the space of a landscape.
I am available for freelance. Can't wait for the next exciting project! Could be yours?
