texture as depth cue

in this quick 45 minute painting i primarily used the receding texture to give the sense of receding distance, much like Moebius does with his details in this profoundly simple but accurate pen drawing. there are hardly any "details" in my painting but the color/value is right and the few depth cues i've added really push the far plane away from us.

You have great edge control in your paintings. I think that's what makes detail look simple.

Hey Robh,

Amazing as always. A lot of your painting have been forcing me to expand them to make sure they are not a photo. I have a question for you. You mentioned you use a stylus on your iPad. What stylus do you recommend?

Nice! I am always delighted to see the variety of techniques you use in your paintings. No matter what the technique, your art reads so consistently well in the thumbnail images as well.

Hey Robh,
maybe i just misunderstand the meaning of "texture", but if i go with the shown Moebius image I'd say that by texture you mean reoccuring shapes that overlap, diminish in size and use converging lines to a distant vanishing point.
In your painting that kind of "texture" is clearly readable in only one spot - the rocky path in the right side. There is some overlap with the bushes (and a bit of contrast loss the farther away the bushes are), but if you remove the rockframed path - your image looks almost flat, which i think, is also due to the even amount of fuzzy, noisy details on the overall image.
So... great painting (again) and for you to include the rock framed path is what shows your high level of knowledge and technique on this image, but i think the painting isn't the best example for the texture-perspective-statement.

Best regards,
