Landscape: sunset and power pole Elaine Pang

Here is something I did for fun, to test some paper I'd just bought to try (handmade Khadi paper, from India).  One evening I did the colours of the sunset then ran out of time; the next day I came back and used a brush pen and colour pencil to capture the outline of the power pole.

Sunsets around here have been spectacular lately, which is actually worrying because it probably means the sky is getting polluted...

Marsh View by Joan Tavolott

I live on Long Island, about an hour from Manhattan. Since I am near the beach there are many landscapes that feature both water and land.

Landscape: Riddle Farm Road Alicia C

This is an oil painting that someone commissioned I make of my backyard area 5 years ago or so, a wonderful place. It was just a country road, but so much more.

The painting is no longer with me but I enjoy this photo, as well as all the other photos of that marvelous place.

I now live like 25 minutes from this place, which in the mountains means practically next door.

The technique involved an underpainting and layers of glazed paint, a technique I enjoyed a lot in art school or whatnot. It took me from September thru December, but not working nonstop.

this is my painting with the actual place in the background

this is a photo with high saturation in Photoshop

Landscape ~ Ann Hyde

A farm in Devon.  
Rolling hills and farms tucked into the valleys, that's a typical scene around here.
