I have been exploring the painting style of Tonalism. I have always loved the gentle, moody and atmospheric landscapes created by these artists. In Tonalism, rooted in the French Barbizon movement of the 1800's, "the mood and atmosphere of the scene is more important than the objects themselves. Landscapes are soft, with gentle mid range tones and values and an elegantly simple composition." I've always enjoyed painting moody and atmospheric landscapes so this is an exciting study for me.
Our Virtual Paint Out Group is traveling, via computer and Google Street Maps, to Utah this month.
This 30/30 Challenge will be a mixture of Tonalism and Utah. Maybe I will be able to combine the two.
