• Depictions of natural stretches of land

Landscapes focus on natural scenes, from close-ups of plants and gardens, to trees on a hill, to farmland, to broad vistas and the skies above. Any architecture present is de-emphasized.

Artists might choose to paint/draw landscapes in order to spend time in appreciation of nature, allowing a deep connection with life to grow through prolonged contemplation of a scene.

Artists might choose a particular vantage point because of its beauty, its drama, its ugliness (perhaps devastated by misuse or natural disaster), its agricultural aspects, or simply because it lends itself to aesthetic expression, allowing the artist to emphasize abstraction, mark making, distortions, and/or palette exploration.
