I call them zigzag paintings. A single color is roughly drawn across the width of the surface to create a building block in adding more layers to the painting of a grassy scene.
This is my interpretation, which is a bit less linear. John Carlson is always whispering in my ear to make things atmospherically correct and to properly convey distance, for which strictly using zigzag strokes would not work for me.
Yet. I'm sure I'll try more.
