I'm trying to paint landscapes lately, i'm kinda struggling to understand how i should go about painting a landscape. I took some nice pictures from down the seaside to where i live near Belfast. i had to do some cropping to find an instresting composistion, not so sure if it works. see images below, you're also free to use them as reference image for painting if you like
I find the last two easy to paint (if i get the values right), but the first two kinda look too detailed. I would love to paint the second one but im not sure if i can get away with not painting everything i see (less detail). Is it possible, any ideas how i should go about painting it?
