2. He was based on the scenery, so he could paint many pictures containing mountains.

The use of "based on" is causing problems. Here are better ways to phrase these sentences:

1. He had sketched many mountains and rivers, so his paintings were quite beautiful.

2. He frequently sketched scenery, so he could paint mountains well.

Thank you.
1. He was based on mountains and rivers.
