This may be something that is fairly obvious, but not many people take time to decide on the best place to view the scenery. People just settle for the first place that they spot instead of taking time to survey the landscape.

The reason why one needs to find the perfect spot is because where you stand will influence what you will be able to see and the angle with which you are able to take in the view before you.

For example, if you want to paint a bay, you can do one painting form the car park or another from a slipway. Obviously one painting will be different from the other because of the different viewpoints, and the difference will be in how you see the fishing hut for instance, or the watchtower.

In fact, there are some elements of the scene that may not be obvious to you from a certain viewpoint, and this is the reason why you need to choose the perfect location for your art work. For instance when you stand at a particular location in the little bay, the side of the cliff may get more prominence or the rocky shore may stand out.

Painting is a wonderful pastime and it can be made even more so if one is able to choose spectacular scenery. Since scenery provides so much to see someone can use what is known as a viewfinder for landscape paintings.
