1. He was based on mountains and rivers, so he painted a lot of beautiful pictures.

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

(Are they correct sentences?)

  • English -

    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.
