Summer (from The Seasons series), Alphose Mucha, 1896

 

One of my favorite artists of all time. I love the way he uses line and subtle shading to create a graphic feel, while still managing to retain anatomical detail and a feeling of realism/naturalism. I think my next (long term!) artist quest will be to paint in the style of this master (although this was a lithographic print). I’ll make some sketches/studies later today and post the results.
