I do landscapes in Acrylics.I find that more people prefer to buy abstracts rather than landscapes. Is this a false idea of mine? Is landscape paintings still admired by people.

Reena,

Absolutely! Most people in fact, purchase landscape paintings at one time or another. Some collectors prefer abstract work, but the majority can relate to and enjoy landscape paintings. Paint what you enjoy painting, then seek out a market for your work. The world is growing smaller and there are so many ways/opportunities to sell, no matter what your subject is.

Traditional landscapes are very popular in North Florida. My work has made steady progress over the last five years but my market is more limited in that I am an expressionist landscape painter with more contemporary work. That turns off the folks who want brown tree trunks and green leaves. LOL
