1) to obtain the ‘feel and energy’ of the subject by using only a slightest stroke of the brush
2) choose simple subject matter, uncomplicated
3) use colours without anger, primary colours subdued by grey and brown tones
4) arrange still life painting to suggest landscape quietly charged in calmness
