English term or phrase:informed
This drawing shows how the attention to form, color, and spatial relationships that are paramount in abstract art ***informed*** his efforts as a representional painter of landscapes.
In the description of another drawing:
The austere colors and heavy paint handling show that the artist was no longer working to copy nature as faithfully as possible, but was again allowing feelings for a place to ***inform*** his art.
I understand that the meaning of "inform" here is to give character or essence, but can't quite find the right word to fit my context. Do you think I could use the exact same verb on both examples?
