A Tuscan Project
These studies are not about seeing the isolated details but the landscape as a whole. For me what was interesting was making shapes that the brain may interpret as a rural backdrop, without the confirmation of definitive features.
Simple shapes are now incorporated to suggest recognisable features of the landscape, using local resources to create layers and textures that reflect the depth of the setting.
