Watercolor 18x24"
Hi All.. i keep painting these landscapes trying to hit on something new looking.. i just hope i'm not wearing it out, are you all tired of this or are they all just enough different that it works? are they interesting enough? i don't know maybe i should just stop altogether with it any thoughts... thank you

do you enjoy making these landscapes?

if so, then let nothing stand in your way.

two thoughts:

galleries, fairs, love an artist with a 'sensation' or trademark style ... you definitely have this with your watercolors.

landscapes are not for everyone, you will never appeal to the whole world (that goes for all styles, I think. re:xinit's honesty post).

paint what you love, IMUO. :D

Surely you're not saying by giving it up you'd quit painting. I moved on from landscapes. Been thinking about doing another but just haven't been inspired to do so. Living in Florida I love the water. But I got tired of seascapes too. I like trying to paint different things. If you enjoy landscapes Paint them *S* You only improve and learn. I like this one and watercolor no less. I'm going to have to try those too one day. I'm trying acrylics right now. First one is in the garbage *S* LOL

no not stop painting its in my blood.. i mean maybe try something else maybe like you i should go to acrylics but starting a whole new medium can be expensive i think don't know haven't done it thank you for your kind words..

I am not a big fan of landscapes. You paint yours very well and your paintings have some sophisticated subtlety. I like them and they don't seem like the same painting repeated to my eyes.

Good work on this one. :)

ftb, by all means try something new if you feel the need, but I would hate to see you stop doing these wonderful landscapes! I'm still amazed at how you make watercolour work like that!
And yes, you're work certainly has a unique style!

This is a wonderfully, dark, interesting painting.
Foliage is teasing and sky is sedating.....good combo!!

You have mastered this, I think......paint what you love......or what turns you on....
