Landscapes are a real challenge for me. I’ve never really given much thought to why that might be. Maybe because I can’t really engage them.

In a portrait there is a definite connection. There’s no way around it, a successful portrait gives you an insight to a person. The only way to get that is to draw it out of the subject. In a landscape I don’t get to interact. It’s just observe and capture. Maybe that’s the issue, I want to interact.

Maybe I just need to shift the way I look at them.

Anything to help me appreciate them beyond “oh that’s pretty.”

See you tomorrow,
