Following a period close to contemporary avant-garde artists, Josep Ventosa decided to return to classical and academist landscape painting: the landscape associated with the Catalan countryside as a naturalist aesthetic space. Using a colour pallet of mainly green and soft blues, seeking harmony, creating subtle atmospheres representing an ideal environment in the landscape. When, later, he settled in Mallorca, his painting and technique amidst the landscape of expansive olive groves, and maritime scenes, sought modernity with an impressionist approach to light and colour.
