I have been looking at using some little sheets of balsa wood in some way and had done one or two pieces a bit ago where I tried my hand at it. I tried it out again on a couple of pieces from this little set I did on June 3, 2014.
The texture and the added depth that the thin sheet of balsa wood adds is really pleasing to me and the one at left is one of the pieces I've ended up keeping for myself.
Ultimately this whole project is just a long series of little experiments with color and texture and composition and media and this set in particular is a nice example of this fact.
I'm frequently undecided as to what I feel about them all but I'm invariably grateful for the chance to have something to look at that serves as some road map to future work.
The individual pieces and the overview photos are posted just below.
