While the Group of Seven was active in Eastern Canada, Weston was moving closer towards a style more suited to British Columbia. Ian Thom cites, Landscape, a painting from 1923, as a turning point in his development.
Weston’s paintings begin to show a "changing perception of the scale and mood of the landscape" and "closer interest in massive rock forms and sculptural outlines of distant mountains."(16)
By 1928, "Weston had achieved a convincing sense of atmosphere and space."(17) During this period, he used "paint to create a sense of mass... compositions are simplified, detail is reduced and broad solid forms are used."(18)
