Landscape Paintings featured in this online art gallery are mostly Scottish landscape paintings. Although I have painted other places I have visited, such as in England, I tend to paint what is near to me. Like my other artwork my landscape paintings have changed over the year in style, size and mediums used. Here you can browse original landscape paintings created in oils. acrylic and mixed media.
Blue Green Landscape is an oil painting on canvas board which has been built up in several layers and which makesd use of various oil paint mediums. Tree paintings have formed part of my landscape painting portfolio for some time. This painting, which is part of a new series, has taken the idea of playing with colour a stage further.
As my painting has moved in all directions over the past few years I have grown to love creating landscpaes which are more and more rich in terms of atmoshere. Some landscpaes I have looked at by other artists are accomplished representations of a landscape whilst others, such as Joan Eardleys, are rich in emotion. This is what inspires me and I am currently investigating lessening the realism in some ways (the colours) but not in others (the structure of the tree). Also the Blue Green Landscape of the tilte refers back to the simplicity of some landscapes and the way I viewd landscape painting when younger.
I approach Landscape oil paintings in different ways. This original oil has been slowly nurtured towards completion for over half a year. It has been a guilty pleasure.In the studio to just adding a little stroke or two each day in between working on other paintings.
This is a “from memory” landscape painting. If you have read elsewhere on this website, you will know that much of my childhood was spent playing in fields. These fields had grass higher than I was. I also loved climbing trees. I remember some fields a bit further from home. It always puzzled me why there would suddenly be a tree in the middle of nowhere. Trees like this always seemed extra special and definitely deserved to be climbed!
As the day would progress and the light would change, fields of grass would take on completely different colours. Then of course, there was the sky, which always seems so special in childhood years.
Painting Dimensions: 20 x 20 cm excluding frame
Medium: oil on deep edged box canvas
Original landscape paintings which I work on usually have a reference point, either a sketch or a source photograph which I have taken. This painting differs in that it is based purely on a memory and is also much more graphic in style compared to any other landscape paintings which I have produced.
Painted in 2009 during an experimental phase , the contrasting elements of the trees and sky versus the repetitive brush strokes of the grass came together with a favourite colour palette to create an original artwork which is not obviously a Joe Hendry painting.
The image comes from childhood memories. Alsthough I grew up in a New Town, I lived on th edge and was surrounded by fields and woodland. I can vividly recall running through grass which was nearly taller then me and seeing the line of trees ahead. A great place to play and nearly every kid I knew was a tree-climbing expert. I believe that all artwork should be like music and evoke emotion. It’s easy for this to happen with a figurative painting or with portraiture, less so with landscapes. I have an interest in creating emotive original landscape paintings and hope to develop this with every pasing year that i paint.
Neist Point on the beautiful Scottish island of Skye is a place I have only visited once. It will stay with me forever but I do hope that I see it again. Neist Point Lighthouse just looks as if it has been there for ever and although man-made seems so much to be a part of the view. It is an utterly breathtaking place and I cannot possibly describe it in words. I therefore tried to with paint. I am pleased with this landscape painting in which I tried to capture the drama of this incredible place. I made extensive use of the palette knife.
If you do visit the Isle Of Skye, please don’t miss Neist Point out, sas many people seem to. There are views of the islands of Egg, Muck and Rum and huge rocks onto which the sea crashes. I went fishing there for a couple of hours before sunset and knew when I was there that I had to paint. This was about seven years before I began to paint full time. I returned the day after the fishing to sketch and then produced a watercolour painting. This large scale acrylic of Neist Point is based on that.

Another Badachro painting in my latest series of original landscape paintings. I feel when painting these landscapes that I really need to try and convey the feeling of a place and not simply have a pictorial representation. When I first began to paint landscapes, it was all about the look of a scene. Now, for me, it is definitely more about the feeling and the atmosphere.
Trying to convey an atmosphere in a landscape is all about the light. When the natural light is unusual when you are in the City, it’s not all that noticeable. However, when you are in a less built up environment then all your senses are really stimulated. This is something which I seem to get more sensitive to as I get older. Hopefully this is conveyed through the painting.
This original oil landscape started life as an acrylic painting. however, I realised whilst working on some other, figurative oil paintings, that oils would be well suited to what I was trying to achieve in this artwork.
