Making Less Can Give Us More

Often in our painting we end up having many elements in the foreground that sit on top of a background. However, sometimes, if we can bring the background back on top of the foreground it can provide visual relief. This is called spaciousness and more often than not, it improves the painting.
Sometimes creating a feeling of less gives us more.

How do you bring spaciousness into your work?

In gratitude, Nicholas
