Landscape Art Prints

What do you look for in a landscape art print?  Some of us prefer a picture to be overwhelmingly large.  As though you could walk into the scene and get lost in it.  Such a sensation would have parallels with a window that takes up an entire wall.  It’s a great feature but for many of us not realistic.  

How we use our wall space is always a consideration that competes with other furnishings, window placements and the functionality of the room. 

Here is a large room with plenty of warmth.  There’s something very natural about it, and it has to do with how the furnishings have been arranged.  The out of place arm chair, its warm dark green velvet covering. 

The wall is tastefully divided with lining breaking up the very large space.  The challenge however, is what to place on the wall.  The object hanging on the wall, a spoke type wheel is a moot point of design as the large wall area remains the dominant element in the room.  Our minds are not inspired to ponder.

This is where the size, the dimension and the image itself of an art print becomes important.  A landscape art print featured here is called ‘On the way to Wiltshire’ is a beautiful art print.  It strongly emphasizes horizontal bands within the print and is repeating this formal line.  The art print and its frame have straight edges and is in harmony with the lines of the wall and complimentary with the  softer lines and shapes of the furnishings.                          

Although this is a beautiful art print, the landscape in its horizontal format, isn’t the right print for this space. 

Instead, lets look at the art print ‘Another Place’ where you see a reclining nude figure surrounded by warm tones, and lines that are natural.  The size of the art print is perfect, it’s as though the wall was made for this art print.  The warm colours within the print add to the already warm furnishings.  The wall space is now a supplement part of the room design rather than a dominant part of the room design.  What dominates now is the art print, then the furnishings and the wall playing its role but still an important one of being in the background.   The title Another Place,shows a discreet nude, the tranquil restful pose leaning into a soft pillow, offers something up for conversation, or for quiet thinking.
