Abstract Landscape Paintings


Painters always do not wish to portray objects or persons realistically. There is therefore a natural inclination among artists to bend forms and give objects an unlikely texture or color. Works of art that reframe nature for expressive effect are called abstract art. Abstract landscape paintings are essentially inspired by moments of physical change in the natural surroundings. Color, texture, gestures, shapes and multiple viewpoints all contribute to create abstract landscape paintings. Warm, cool palettes are often employed by artists to communicate a sense of satisfying calm through the abstract landscape paintings. In the words of Wassily Kandinsky “Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential."
