Came across some writing by an artist called Pádraig Naughton, who suffers from a visual impairment. 

 “I had been taught a cerain set of rules, for instance the obvious one of perspective.  This is something you learn in art history.  It is something you learn when you are learning to draw, but in reality perspective for me could never have worked, but i did not know that, and nobody else knew it or, if they did, it was no passed on to me.  The reason was that my vision is not bifocal so i see two images that do not converge.  This has an immediate effect on drawing and affects the way one relates to things” 

Started by going to the Botanic Gardens and using the trees/ plants as a direct source taking photographs trying to get interesting compositions/ different perspectives…
