For the traditionalist in us, the subject of landscapes might be very appealing. But the painting itself doesn’t need to be traditional. In whatever style you prefer, a view of the land can be tremendously satisfying in its vastness, simplicity or color expression.
Landscape art is as old as the hills, pun intended. According to Wikipedia, “The two main traditions spring from Western painting and Chinese art, going back well over a thousand years in both cases. The recognition of a spiritual element in landscape art is present from its beginnings in East Asian art, drawing on Daoism and other philosophical traditions, but in the West only becomes explicit with Romanticism. Landscape views in art may be entirely imaginary, or copied from reality with varying degrees of accuracy.”
