Keep it dynamic
5 After blocking in my overlapping rocks, I immediately start imagining ways to generate an even more compelling feeling of space. For this particular image, I want to create a rock that overhangs the viewer. This composition approach whisks the viewer right into the painting, by placing them underneath an object. I’m not considering any details here, just thinking about confident mark-marking. I use the Lasso tool to create sharp edges on my rocks. Think dark to light, and light to dark.
