Taro Yashima: Umbrella
Each sketch and drawing in Umbrella is a burst of vibrant color. Within the drawing of the young girl's face, we observe green, pink, brown, blue, and yellow crayon. The image of a saddle shoe shows the soft, darker, muted colors that can also be created with crayon. Both the second and third images are from a preliminary mock up of the picture book pages, called a dummy, forUmbrella.
