Landscape with mountains [acrylics]

Painting of a landscape with mountains and an intensive sunset.

I like to paint landscapes with a dramatic or intensive sky. Clouds which let through only a bit of light, or the setting sun, which causes intensive colors. But a special perspective can be very interesting in landscapes too. For example, looking from the worm’s-eye view up grass.

Just as with portraits, a landscape painting requires a lot of different colors, and most of them in variations too. This is especially clear when you look at natural green (as in trees and plants and grass), which is very diverse. And although the different green shades are available as pre-mixed colors, I like to mix them myself, at least mostly, since the result is usually more vibrant.

And just as with portraits, a landscape painting is build up in layers. But in landscapes the difference between background, middleground and foreground is way clearer.
I usually start with the background and work myself to the foreground, but the workflow is not strictly divided between those parts. To match the colors right and get the correct lights and shadows, it is necessary to hop between the parts.

The sides are painted too, so that the painting can be hung directly on the wall, without a frame.
