This is so lovely!
I'm just staring at the leaves, all of those little details that bring the forest alive. It is inspiring to watch this, see all of the work you must have put into it and how it all wraps together beautifully and naturally. Working on greyscale really brings the lights and shadows onto the pedestal, making it so important to get it just right. I really enjoy watching the harmonious layers of lights and shadows and how everything pops out from the paper. I think it's really easy to make things disappear into the paper, to have everything in one layer and have no depth in there: this work doesn't have that problem!
It is wonderfully executed! I was delighted to find this work from your gallery.
