GrasslandsOctober 14, 2014

The background grass has been painted to represent hammered gold. In line with my thinking on icons it forces the field to appear solid and sit on the surface while allowing the objects, in contrast, to have pictorial depth. Branches sitting on the surface are painted either white or in light to dark blue graduations, typical ways to represent ‘sky’. Trunks are painted in black void-like patches suggesting holes with stray pieces of bark floating above them.
