Mural projects sometimes spark our creativity for a piece of fine art like this contemporary landscape painting. It is acrylic on canvas. Let’s take a closer look.
Landscape art is a classic style full of natural scenery like trees, streams, mountains, valleys and sometimes birds or animals. It is usually a wide view of the scene with possibly a vista that draws your eye.
“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”Pablo Picasso
Barbara used a wide, horizontal canvas to paint this winter landscape. The subject matter of snow, a pathway wandering next to a stream and evergreens are part of the painting. There is a spiritual quality to the misty hills in the background that makes you pause and reflect on the scene.
Landscape tradition like this work of art goes back a thousand years in Western painting. To give it a more contemporary vibe, Barbara used a simple palette of colors.
In the decorative arts, we usually mix our colors by hand. The same is true here using artists paints, but to give you a rough idea how this piece would look in your house, pull out your Benjamin Moore fandeck.
