Breadth 6 Inspiration
Below is the poem I’m going to use. This poem is by Robert Frost.
Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
This poem is about stopping midway through a journey and observing the beauty of your surroundings and the beauty of life. You know as you take in the scenery that you must continue on because there is still much road to be traveled before you reach your destination and can be able to sleep in your warm bed.
I see white, dark brown, silver, dark blue, green.
The mood is very calm and peaceful.
– “The sweep of easy wind and downy flake.”
– “The woods are lovely, dark and deep.”
The background will be a very thick, dark, snow-filled forest. It will be nighttime. The trees will completely cover the overhead. There will be a frozen over lake located somewhere in the design’s background. The lake will not stand out. There will be a man standing in the snow holding the horse’s harness in his hands. He will be facing the other direction so that his back side is all that is visible of him. The man’s and the horse’s footprints from the path the have been walking will be there. The man will be looking at the lake and the horse will be facing the screen. The overall tone of the image will be dark but calm. Over all of this that is going on, there will be snowflakes falling all around. The view of all this will be a moderate distance away. The horse will be partially cut off because it will be standing on the edge of the design.
Below is my inspiration for my design.
