I wanted to take an image of a landscape in this case from a recent trip to a “pick your own” strawberry patch and heighten the space with layers. I looked at the image and mapped out in strips which areas would fall into specific layers. I then painted them individually and cut them out.
Once I had everything cut out I wanted to make sure they fit together accurately. I left white space as a sort of outline on the top of each layer. This helps to push the layers further apart visually.
I plan to use this technique in future projects as well as experiment on ways to alter the result.
