    real scenery

    Are the following sentences acceptable?

    1. When we aren't beside him, he pains pictures alone near the sea.
    2. He often paints pictures about blue ocean, blue sky with some white clouds.
    3. Everyone in my family thinks that his artworks are just like real scenery.

    Re: real scenery

    Not a teacher, but a fellow learner. My humble opinion is the following.

    Doesn't it come from your Japanese thinking similar to Korean one? Koreans also say like "Watashitachi ga gare no tonari", but I think it's a unique expression of Koreans and Japanese. I think English speakers tend to say "When we aren't with him", which is natural.

    1. When we aren't beside(with) him, he pains(paints) pictures alone near the sea.

    I think "and" should be added.
    2. He often paints pictures about blue ocean and blue sky with some white clouds.

    I think this is perfect.
    3. Everyone in my family thinks that his artworks are just like real scenery.

    Other teachers can help you more.

    Sorry, I thought you're Japanese judging from your ID pronunciation. But I also studied Chinese. "Dui bu ci!"
