Blue version of this meticulous bird’s eye view of the valley. According to Narazaki it took four years between the cutting of the blocks to the completion of the trial print. Apparently Hasui and Watanabe could not agree on the final color scheme, and the pink-sky colors won out. There are also different blocks used in the sky here.
