Gunnar Norrman Drypoint Prints

Now, I'm fully getting in the mood to make prints. I came upon this gentleman's fine work via another blog around here. His style seems very compact and precise, although he seems to keep things simple and fairly austere. It could be the monochromatic approach or the common, natural subject matter. Whatever it is, it appeals to my own personal aesthetic and I hope to get a chance to see some of his work in person one day.

After a bit more searching through the info at ArtsEditor, I've found that Norrman worked as a botanist before dedicating himself to pencil and charcoal drawing. I guess that explains his choice of subject matter, which is also most assuredly a reflection of the landscape of his native Sweden.
