July 2020. Acrylic and ink on canvas, 11 x 14 in.
Still interested in the shape of the granite boulders, but not so much in their texture here. Where I’m really (always) heading is toward simultaneity. The interpenetrability of the substance and the ether.
This started with a quick contour sketch up near Stirrup Tank in Joshua Tree National Park. The umber and ochre are applied with a brayer for randomness.
I’m continuing to work with the same sketch, using different approaches. More to come.
