Keep It Simple Stupid
Sometimes the KISS rule is the best rule for landscape painting. Note the above painting composition. In order to create depth, it is often wise to minimize the detail in distant trees or objects. Graying and cooling down their color pushes them back but still reads as tree masses. Honing in on a few elements like the palms, minimizing detail in most of the painting and using a simple composition can create a harmony and atmospheric quality.
When painting in a small format and on location, it is especially helpful to use the KISS rule.
