Devoid (detail of panel 1)

Some may remember this piece from the January residency, it was still in progress at the time. It is called "Devoid," charcoal and oil on 2 canvasses.
Since the residency, I have been working on this panel mainly because of the amount of vacant space. Upon my confusion as to how to fill this void, my mentor suggested utilizing the space, by not filling it with more natural foliage, or manmade elements (stumps, cleared brush, walls), but by leaving more of the canvass alone. I certainly realized that one of my tendencies is to cover the canvass, but lately I am certainly reconsidering this strategy.
