Classical

This type of art is traditional in that the artist paints in a representational way and there is more accuracy in the process of drawing and sketching. The process requires more planning, and the focus is strongly on perspective and presenting the viewer with recognisable landscape or seascape. Traditionalists will like the works of Constable. Sometimes these artists will take the viewer further into realism or photo realism. These artworks are painted but are so realistic they may appear like a photograph. Some classical artists like to work in the open air hence the term ‘Plein Air’ and they take great joy from painting outdoors.
