I like to paint this type of format especially as a horizontal. I find it especially suits a landscape. It works well if you want to capture the feel of a sweeping vista. This is another scene from the Tofino area on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I enjoy using a stylized approach, it allows me to have fun with patterns in the sky and rocks etc, and be more expressive with the colours. More and more I seem to be pushing the patterns and rhythms of shapes.
