Creative Landscape Paintings
The popularity of landscapes art has risen over time
However, landscapes weren't always a common choice, with portraits far more in demand in the past. But gradually it was realised that painting a landscape takes an extreme talent; capturing a 3D image in a 2D medium is no mean feat.
A huge amount of skill is required to create landscapes art
As this appreciation for the skill involved in landscape painting began to evolve, the demand for this type of painting steadily rose and has continued unabated to this day. There are huge challenges in painting a landscape which requires mastery of colour, perspective and composition in order to produce a realistic result.
The top quality landscape pieces of art which are for sale in Art2Arts are therefore the product of many hours of work, completed by artists with a natural flair and a very real talent.

A brief history of landscapes art
The type of content included in a landscape painting has also changed as the centuries have passed, moving from the background ‘filler’ type of artwork seen in Greek and Roman times to the centerpieces that we see today.
During the 18th century, landscape art really began to be noticed and Britain, along with France, was considered to be at the very epicenter of this trend. Gainsborough was one of the most famous artists from this period who regularly featured landscapes as an integral past, even building tiny little models to help him capture them more accurately.
But it was the invention of photography in the 19th century which released painters from the need to draw the landscape realistically, leaving them more scope to be creative and use their interpretative skills more widely. One of the most noticeable styles towards the latter part of this period was the Impressionist, which was very popular amongst landscape painters.
Techniques used by Artists
Modern landscape artists use a range of mediums, as can be seen by the artwork on show below, and are free to be far more creative with their use of light and colour.
A modern development is the inclusion of urban landscapes as well as the more traditional countryside’s, with industry and technology just as much in demand as picturesque settings.
