Some landscapes, regardless of when they were painted or by what artist, are harder to interpret in needlepoint than others.
Compare a traditional landscape, even one by someone as recent as Van Gogh or Cezanne with the Donna Horn landscape above. These more flat landscapes are a perfect starting point for stitching and for exploring texture in landscape needlepoint.
Does the landscape you are about to stitch have distant hills or a lot of detail in the foreground? How do you distinguish the areas in the immediate foreground than the areas just behind it? Is the sky large, cloudy or raining? Is there a lot of bark or dense foliage?
There are many different types of stitches that can be used to great effect depending on whether you are trying realistically to stitch a bark, cloudy sky, or any of the above.
