I usually focus on perspective: achieving depth, the right angles, pulling the eye in, setting a stage. But these mixed media Natural Walls were all about letting that go and doing frontal views. It’s a focus on the textures, really. And I’m discovering I really like working with the rounded forms, as opposed to my usual straight edges. Can I combine the two? And turn these into bigger pieces on canvas? Creating the angles of perspective or receding space is much more difficult with these rounded forms, since with the strips I just have to focus on the general direction to achieve believable perspective – it’s much looser and more suggestive. I want to avoid literally building rock by rock on a bigger piece, each piece specifically angled. However, on a smaller piece it’s oddly gratifying.
