News from the Landscape Painting group. DECEMBER 2011.
From your hosts…
The idea of the group was always to be democratic, to encourage member participation and feedback. Reading through some of the forum posts written since I’ve been away some members raised concerns about why seascapes and paintings of oceans are not accepted. The inittial reasoning was very simple. There were back then and still are today, numerous groups for seascape artists but at the time of the “Landscape Painting” group’s conception there wasn’t anywhere else on redbubble to share paintings that depict the “land”.
Yes of course water and oceans are an integral part of our rich landscape. You could also argue that so are iphones, discarded crisp packets and double decked buses if you take the term “landscape” to it’s extreme. It is a term that will always be open to interpretation by hosts and members alike.
Keep up the great work everyone.
Martin and Lynda.
