"Rock Piles in the Canyon"

I have started a new project called "how to paint a pile of things". I know how to paint individual things well. So  still lives, buildings, figures, and portraits are relatively easy to me. However, it is hard for me to paint landscapes.  I feel it is very un-natural for me. I really don't have the intuition of landscape painting. Well my right brain is dead now. I have no choice but use my left brain. I analyzed, and find the problem is that I don't know how to paint "a pile of things". If I have to paint a tree, I feel I must render all leaves one-by-one. I need to develop a process of dealing with objects in a large quantity. That is motivation of doing this research. This is my first experiment. I don't rely on the mercy of happy accidents. I want to know why and how like a scientist.
