The method of abstract landscape painting can involve a great deal of creative expression either by altering scenery that exists in real life or by creating an imagined setting.  The abstraction can be done without any symbolic significance or the abstraction can represent an idea and express the artists’ inner emotions and feelings. Abstract landscape paintings are intentionally different from what exists in real life and thus very interesting for both the artist and viewer. RAL invites its members working in 2D to showcase their interpretations. Any medium and style from traditional to abstract will be accepted for review.
