I have always loved landscapes, in photography, and in paintings. Despite the fact that I have had a difficult time being loose when I paint them I still love it. When I discovered art just under 3 years ago I started out with landscapes. But often I found that I tried too hard to be perfect. All that did was kink my neck up much like portrait painting does.
I had the idea for this piece a few days ago and decided to give it a try. I have been getting looser and more abstract with my art as of late so I wondered how that would affect my landscape attempt. Well, I happily discovered that it enhanced it. I don't like to use paintbrushes anymore so I was able to paint this with just my hands. Not easy but fun! I picked some non typical colors but some of my favorites. I used payne's gray, alizarin crimson, raw umber, and titanium white.
