This piece was inspired by movement in nature. I loosely based the textures off of trees but I allowed the piece to develop on its own accord in order to keep it raw and honest. The piece was a step forward in my abstract work because of the new technique that I developed. I was able to develop these textures by utilizing both the palette knife and the brush in a way that allowed for nonrepresentational development. The photoshopped version of is piece can be found here!
