Banyan Canopy 400

Deborah Perlman
This piece focuses on the intricate and spatially exciting canopy of the banyan tree. . I printed this original photo onto drawing paper, then cut it into sections and mounted them, with some pieces elevated to interpret the dynamics of the space, creating a bas-relief effect. After mounting, I drew into the piece with colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal, to emphasize shape, form, and shadow.
Try it!
