Very simple and understated, this one (like the preceding one) is much like a preliminary for a woodcut. There is something to be said for working flat like this. Letting the image be very two dimensional. Some would argue that since the format of painting is two dimensional, then it follows that that IS the language of painting and you should let it be so. I just like to work this way. I used to do a lot of woodcuts after the Japanese tradition. Though the Japanese woodcuts(or block prints) often had a lot going on in them, they still maintained a simplicity in line and composition and always celebrated the two dimensional limit.
