Landscape practice continues

I’ve been having fun painting more landscapes and have a few to share with you today.

Happy Thursday, friends! 🧑

A simple landscape of distant hills.

I’ve been trying to push ahead and paint without worry. Some days that’s easier than others. 😊simple abstract watercolor landscape

A peaceful scene with distant trees and hills.

Watercolor tips:

  • I think about the landscape in three sections: the sky, middle, and foreground.
    That makes this type of painting less intimidating for me.
  • Using a limited palette creates color harmony and simplifies decision making.
    When I limit my color choices I feel less pressure as I am painting.


I hope you enjoy seeing my art and are inspired to create, play, and have fun.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent.

  1. I really like these landscape paintings, Patty Anne. There is a simple elegance to them that I find really appealing. The loose style is suggestive and lets the viewer fill in the details–the first one brought to mind a rugged beach. I also love your choice of colors (ultramarine and burnt sienna are among my most-used colors) and the way you explained the value of a limited palette, i.e. reduced stress and worry. Thanks for sharing your works and words of inspiration.
