An exploration of what constitutes the "poetic" in landscape painting today.t examines ways for artists in all mediums to express the poetic in theirainting. According to Elizabeth Mowry, a master of the poetic landscapeenre, a key element of his genre is evoking an emotional response in theiewer, which is achieved by the artist's arrangement of natural elements aseeply expressed through his or her imagination, intellect and feelings. Theaintings that grace these pages are all visual illustrations of the book'soncept of the poetic landscape. Paintings are examined through the specificoncerns for achieving the special sense of time and place found in theseandscapes such as colour, time of day, time of year, atmosphere and weather;s well as capturing the more illusive qualities that define this genre, suchs a sense of place recognition, leading and letting go, and grace of line.
