Overview with Foliage as Felt Spheroids


Overview with Foliage as Felt Spheroids
73 cm x 52 cm, charcoal on acid-free paper.
Date produced: June 2005, while living at North Adelaide (2005-2006).

The foliage forms have been simplified and drawn in as spheroids. I am pleased with the sense of the whole canopy titling towards the right, achieved with the repeated orientation of the grids on most spheroids. I think the sense of space between various spheroids works well, as does the impression of weight being balanced by the trunk(s).

To finish this drawing, I added some tone in the sky and changed the grid in the sky used for expression of its space.
