Landscape painting, also known as landscape art, is the depiction of natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests, especially where the main subject is a wide view—with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.
LANDSCAPE DIVIDED…. Foreground, middleground, and background are concepts that apply to many 2-D projects. They are evident in both still lifes and landscapes but for our purposes we’re going to stick with landscapes. The foreground, middleground, and background divide the landscape into different planes that the artist uses to create a sense of depth.
