Although landscape art as a separate genre of painting is relatively new (16th century), most people tend to think of it as the most basic and traditional form of expression. The reason for that is a natural power that landscape paintings bear. That is why every landscape painter takes on a big responsibility when creating paintings inspired by the beauty of nature.
Believe it or not, but only a few can get it right so that nature looks organic. At first glance, it may seem easy for a professional artist, but only those who see nature with their hearts, not eyes, are privileged to create real masterpieces. Michael Orwick, a talented landscape painter, is exactly one of those artists who base their works on inner feelings rather than extrinsic stimulus. Let’s see how it works in reality.
Michael Orwick — a landscape painter who paints with his heart
Michael Orwick’s childhood in the Pacific Northwest was full of natural beauty as if he was destined to become a landscape painter. Sceneries of the Oregon Cascades and the Willamette Valley filled the heart of the young artist with joy and respect for the environment. That is when he started to realize how one should feel and utilize the given space so as to establish the right angle and convey the vision.
The main distinguishing feature of Michael Orwick’s art is coded in his approach. The landscape painter loves to explore special places and their atmosphere, using painting as a medium between reality and dream. In other words, it is a sophisticated play with emotions, when the artist can evoke idiosyncratic feelings with the appropriate use of colors. All these factors are included in the signature style of Michael Orwick that he calls “Inspired Expressionism.”
To get a better understanding of how seeing the landscape with a heart benefits the process and its outcome, you should experience Michael Orwick’s art on your own. As they say, one look is worth a thousand words, so do not miss your chance to enjoy the works by this amazing contemporary artist.
