Further experiments towards an abstracted landscape.

From water-based ink to permanent ink, acrylic and soft pastel, I feel I am moving in the right direction with this image. Wanting to further abstract and delve into the immenseness of this landscape, it’s far reaching water-ways and undulating ranges. I may possibly change the colour scheme to reflect it’s peacefulness and test the waters of aerial perspective; transitioning between gentle washes and expressive line work.


With my journey into abstracting this image I made an attempt at a monoprint – which didn’t work very well. I used a water-based oil paint as opposed to a water-based printing ink, the viscosity of the paint was not thick enough to adhere to the roller or the glass plate. However, not to be beaten I worked into the study; initially with a brush and then a water-based coloured pencil. The final sketch was my impetus for the ink and pastel study above.
