Summer Hike Impressionism Contemporary Landscape Heidi Malott

"Summer Hike"
6"x6" oil on primed masonite

When painting a landscape it is easy to be overwhelmed by all the details.  Sometimes I have to write a simple message on a post it note and stick it right on my easel:  "Simplify" or "KISS" (keep it simple sister!)

Simplicity is what attracts me to most of the paintings I like. You've captured a lot of mood by keeping the composition and colors simple. It's lovely.
