I have been playing around with landscapes but felt like I needed some more knowledge of what elements are needed to make a successful one. The reason I took from David is because his works are not traditional landscapes. They are just suggestions of outdoor scenes that could be interpreted many different ways.
A few of his quotes I will share with you.....
"You want your paintings to be based in reality but abstract in presentation. Allow the viewer to interpret the work in their own way."
"What makes a work fascinating is when the emphasis is not placed on realism, but rather, on expressiveness."
Okay....this is not easy. David makes it look so but he has been painting for years and owes his success to thousands of hours of painting. Check out his beautiful work at http://www.davidnicholsart.com.
This is painted on an 11 x 14" canvas.

I am preparing for my Open Studio/ Holiday Sale this coming Thursday. I found this partially completed painting in my closet and decided to work on him again. It was getting dark when I took this picture so it is not a great representation.
If you would like to come to my open studio, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All of my work will be marked at least 10% off. Some work will be marked down as much as 50%. All paintings I am proud to have my signature on. I throw away or paint over things that do not make me happy.
