Threadless’s A Winter Sight II

A Winter Sight II by clsantos82 is my favorite Thrreadless print this week. I love that while it uses a minimal style of mostly uniform line weights, the technique has been employed to create a very complex scene. I love the ruggedness of the terrain, dotted with snow-covered trees. It feels authentically wild, and gives a more exotic flavor to the stripe of city contained within. As for the city itself, it breaks with expectation by making each row of buildings a different, vibrant color. This makes the metropolis stand out in a big way from its snow-covered surroundings, and gives the city a unique, almost tropical personality. Even though no humans are included in the illustration, those bright shades give the impression of warmth, activity, and even diversity. Very slick, and including so much sky also helps to add to how vertical the landscape feels.
