SPRING AUTUMN WINTER
Simplified set: Simple Set (Alphonse Mucha 1896 Seasons)
Portrait set: Alphonse Mucha 1896 Seasons - Portrait Frames
I got licensed to work with some of Alphonse Mucha's artwork last year and have been dancing around the problems of getting them done ever since. Summer took a lot less work than Spring and I did manage to get her lining done during the tax season, colors were finished over the course of a month.
I included a photo of my bobbins so that you can see that the colors aren't anywhere near as washed out as my program makes them out to be. All colors are DMC cotton - there's no metallics, beads, or other embellishments. There's a bit over one hundred and seven feet of backstitching throughout this two foot tall pattern. The background is done in half-stitching for a smooth, soft look, and our Lady Summer and the foreground are done in full-stitches. 217 x 428 stitches.
All in all, it took me 35.5 solid hours of pattern drawing, color placing, and symbol formatting, with another 3 hours to compile all that information into a readable PDF. That's 38.5 hours of work, holy moley!

As a lover of Mucha and his works this is a great effort you made! Although not into cross stitching I think you very well transformed Muchas work into something anybody else can recreate.
Thank you so much! I hope that many people will enjoy stitching it, even though it's far from the size of the original, I think putting so much love into stitching a piece like this will really make it a special piece.
