Landscape as an art genre (including seascapes and cityscapes) is less popular in fanart than in original art, because much of fandom is focused on characters.

Still there are some pieces of fanart in which the landscape is the main subject and not a background. Fannish landscapes can also reference famous landscape paintings, for example the community HP Fringeart runs Imitation Challenges[1] in which the fanart submitted is inspired by famous paintings, some of those landscapes, like Gnatkip's The Burrow at Ottery St. Catchpole that imitates Vincent van Gogh's "The Church at Auvers", or Nassima's Late Green Sky an imitation of "Late Red Sky" by Charles Bronson.
