I have recently begun drawing panoramic landscapes, taking a view from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock (using a clock face as a descriptive tool). This captures so much more of a particular view. Really good photographers can achieve this but so often, photographs and paintings only capture just a small section of an outstanding view. What is often lost is the atmosphere - the whole image coming together. When we gaze out onto a gorgeous landscape, we are also taking in our peripheral view as well and it is the blending of both views that creates the atmosphere we so enjoy. Producing a panoramic image helps to capture that feeling and the width of it means that the image is coming at you from both sides, capturing a sense of that vibrant energy.
