Shadows by mouse2cat Shadows by mouse2cat
This is the most insane, ambitious and professional looking print I think I have ever done. It is 24inchesx36inches and 3 color reduction. I am still trying to explore zen in my work and I think this print does this as well but maybe in a different direction than my 5-points one. I am feeling inarticulate about it right now.

This print is now available on etsy!

i love the subtlety of the colors in here. i can count only three colors but the way you shadowed and textured the piece makes it. beautiful! hoping to print at this level some day

This is absolutely wonderful! I like the image itself, but I am especially impressed because you got such a seamless, clean result with a color reduction--a process that I find to be difficult in that respect, myself. At any rate, good job :)

It is actually three layers. I was able to get a lot of subtly with ink gradients

F##$%@$% Beautiful ! (sorry about my cartoon cursing) but, I had a very strong reaction...ha ha ha.
Seriously, Zen - BINGO! You nailed it.
I have always admire Asian art and have always loved "zen style" works.
I love the change in perspective (mental perspective) and the negative space that often is prominent in artwork that has an "Eastern" flavor.
Here's one of mine....if you are interested - LINK
