A field study was done using a camera to create a reference. This helps to capture the colors that are available in the scene. Cross-hatching and layers are created to replicate the colors seen in the images, and recipes are recorded for future use.
The inspiration was the Maine landscape. The woods on the east coast often appear overwhelming, and lend themselves well to abstract interpretation.
