Beautiful Landscape Paintings

Landscape paintings are depicting reality in its purest form. Inspired by the beauty of nature and their surroundings, painters usually paint exactly what they see. Landscape painting doesn’t require much of an imagination, because for the artist it only takes to go out of their home or their studio and there it is – inspiration is all around them, whether they live in the city and they want to capture an urban atmosphere in their sketch or they step outside their living space and get out there looking for some untouched nature to transfer it to canvas in all its glory. When you consider it that way, every piece of nature deserves to find itself in a painting made by some of the masterminds in the landscape paintings. They truly know how to create miracle images with what they have in front of them. By adding vivid colors or by simply playing with shapes and curves where you wouldn’t actually expect it, contemporary artists are making landscape paintings far more interesting than they originally used to be.

Sandra Mendelsohn Rubin’s Aqueduct at Quail Lake is physically her biggest painting. It is also one of the best-known artworks by her. The landscape has always been an inspiration for Rubin throughout her 35-year-long career on a steady path. Recently, she got interested in an areal view of nature, so her newest works include nature seen from the air. And when it comes to her city paintings, they are always well-balanced and composed with a sense of urban rhythm. Originally, she was inspired by the night paintings, so the quality of light and atmosphere is essential to her work. Quail Lake, as an artificial lake in Los Angeles County, is also a great inspiration for Sandra Mendelsohn Rubin, and so far, it has been a subject of her landscape paintings quite a lot.

Johann Joseph Eugene von Guérard (1811-1901) was an Austrian-born artist, who was actively painting in Australia from 1852 until 1882. He studied landscape painting in Germany at the Dusseldorf Academy and then travelled widely around the world, which shaped his specific artistic language. When it comes to landscaping, Eugene von Guérard wanted to be true to himself and to his audience, so he painted the nature exactly as he saw it, with nothing less and nothing more than that. That is why his paintings became so popular. We know that the late 19th century cannot really count as a contemporary art period, but Eugene von Guérard’s paintings have gained much greater value after his lifetime. His artwork View of Geelong from 1856 was purchased in 2006 by the City of Greater Geelong for a sum of 3.8 million dollars. It is one of his earliest works in Australia, but during the 1860s, Eugene von Guérard became widely recognized as an important landscape artist in the colonies, who was touring Southeast Australia and New Zealand at the time, in a pursuit of picturesque landscapes to capture in his paintings.

Even though landscapes come out somehow blurry in the work of Scottish artist Scott Naismith, they are truly inspiring and cheerful. By using splashes of strong colors, Naismith has successfully depicted the Scotland surroundings in every art piece that he has made so far. The sky takes a centric role in his landscape paintings. The dramatic look of his sky is not something that he makes up and imagines, because the fast-changing weather in Scotland provides him an excellent background for his art. So, the drama is what he sees and that is what he paints. The ‘atmospheric abstraction‘ is a more precise name of his art style, as the artist explains himself. Scott Naismith has his own YouTube channel where he showcases his artistic approach to the making of paintings from outdoors to his studio, with his videos being viewed more than two million times. Besides that, Naismith is also popular for his design studio, where he transforms his landscape paintings into the various artistic prints.

Jack Stuppin is engaging the viewers of his art with colors and forms. Strong, super-enriched colors and nature look-alike forms are the most important parts of his paintings. Sometimes they match with viewers’ expectations, sometimes they don’t. For Stuppin himself, the most important issue is the revival of nature conservation, which is made possible through the technology progress. Oak and Hills is one of his most famous paintings, which depicts the conservation easement over the Oak Hill Farm, the 700 acres land of farms and wilderness donated in 1985 by the Sonoma Land Trust. The Oak Hill Farm is now owned and operated by Anne Teller, and it goes over the 300 acres of so-called Secret pasture, a wildlife preserve which became the first land owned and managed by the Sonoma Land Trust in the 1970s. The place Jack Stuppin wants his audience to be while looking at paintings is somewhere between the intuition and science, at the spot where nature unite technology development with the nature conservation.
