This series of monochromatic landscape paintings are inspired and created solely with the use of my memory of place and my artistic imagination. I follow the 25 rules of creating 3d space on a 2d format.

1. Overlapping shapes
3. Light and Shadow
And there is a whole lot more that my subconscious won't give up to me right now.
