Here’s a batch of new artworks which take landscape painting to bold new heights. Literally.

For designer and painter Jim Darling has not only captured some wonderful landscapes, he’s gone and observed them the window of a Boeing 757: night or day, snow or rain, the terrain is all gratifyingly varied.

The ingenuity of this idea should come of no surprise to fans of Darling, whose career background includes design work for MTV, Coor’s Light and other major brands.
