Very delicate. What a lot of work and it shows. I had
a lot of fun looking at all of the nuances.
If you drew this yourself, I think that you've done a remarkable
job! I'm really happy that there are footprints in the snow as it
adds a human touch.
Yes, this is an 'original' ... mostly anyway. It's
based on a few photographs I took of the actual building (in summer
actually), mixed together with some tree branches I saw in a
shin-hanga print somewhere.
Suggestions: The straight lines make the drawing a little static.
It's hard to make buildings dynamic. Even when a 'meditative' scene
is designed, I prefer a little conflict. I think that overlapping the
branches more would make the print a little less flat.
I myself don't mind the 'static' feeling. The big
problem with this print I think, is the ridiculous stone statue. It
seemed like a good idea at the time, but just looks like some kind of
frozen spaceman in a football helmet ...
Comments: I plan to look at your print over and over.
Beautifully serene image.
Comments: Enjoyed the subtleties you achieved with only two
colors. My last color reduction woodcut was 14 runs and I lost count
of how many colors - tedious. I need to simplify.
The austere feeling when viewing the print. I feel that one must
whisper if something is needed to be said.
Comments: The shaded grays almost look like airbrush. So smooth.
I kept your print from Exchange 1, up on my wall (in my home).
Looks like I will be having a David Bull wall. This one goes up also.
I really love this print. It is so understated and cool looking
(temperature that is). A person could just walk right in and enjoy
the museum and feel the snow crunching under foot.
