Mostly collected from Ulla's links, I find images that are made in the exact blurry obfuscated style I hope to affect in Halfland. High key, desaturated, old lenses, dirt. Nothing straight and clear, all my hard won details semi-lost. This is what I want.
These are my most recent collected hill/landscape references.
These are the latest forest references. Both for the area around the cottage and the backgrounds.
Some further cottage details, Again from Enui's links, I found this killer great thatched cottage "face". Friend, Corey Amaro posted some incredible details of the doors and windows around her French province. Snagged and noted for the cottage details. Love the way the flowers are hung on the window shutter, upper right.
MAJOR SCORE FOR HALFLAND! Downstairs Clare seemed to be feeling a little better when I saw him Monday night at his birthday party (seen above lower left with Jean-that-goes-with-Clare that night) So today I took a big chance and brought down a scale template, plank of wood, and inspiration image down to Clare to ask him if he would consider making The Door for Rana's cottage. He said yes (!), and I saw his wheels turn right away as to how he would do it! Hooray! This is a major score for the film! Clare is an amazing artisan. I'm so pleased.
Art Bonus: Animal Pareidolia
I saved this meadow grasshopper shot for something in the future because it looked like a human wearing a grasshopper costume. Then reader, Enui, sent a couple terrific pareidolia Flickr links in the last post's comments and I found this old painted and rusted metal face that looked so similar. My first animal/found-face pairing. Love it.
