These 2 landscape artworks are painted with a mix of acrylic paint, charcoal and pastels, and some latex paint. The first piece of art emphasizes a strong, deep horizon line to pull the viewer into the landscape. Once there, the eyes are able to slowly find their way around the multiple layers of color and value. Subtle changes in value in the real painting were unable to be replicated in the photograph below.
The second landscape painting has energetic strokes of color, all swirling around to form the semblance of a landscape. The art is abstract, with more weight given to the bottom of the art, rather than the horizon. A side to side motion in the paint, and sprinkles of white chalk, add a unique feeling of tumultuousness to the entire work of art.
