Mountain Paintings

Before The Smoke is a large landscape oil painting on composite board. I used a photo I took while visiting Katoomba in The Blue Mountains as my reference material.

Realism as a genre is defined by being a realistic or accurate representation of the visual world around us. So Realism can refer to artworks in the genres of landscapes, portraits, still life, architecture and figurative. When I am working in the Realism genre, I enjoy creating landscapes in oil paint, whereas I prefer to make pet portraits in graphite pencil.

To become good at Realism, it takes years of dedication and observation skills are vitally important. You must learn all the fundamentals regarding colour theory, perspective, structure and composition. If you are not competent in all these categories then the artworks will lack conviction, they will not look right. Now I know there are better artists out there, but I feel I have ticked all the boxes with this painting!
