After staring at a big blank 44"x56" canvas for too long, I finally managed to get a new landscape rolling. I always push myself to find fresh and interesting ways to compose the landscape and I consider this latest painting a good example of that. Some of the detail is lost condensing it into this photo, but I've really enjoyed focusing on a much closer view of the landscape. Since most landscapes that I've painted in the past simplify fields of grass into broad planes of color, treating that huge mass of plant life more intricately and closely has been a refreshing exercise. As I move forward, I definitely plan on exploring this micro/macro view more.
