watercolor and ink on paper
19" x 22"
The under-drawing for the painting was a little tricky as I think my work doesn't emote sweetness as much as savage cute things that will devour your soul. This is NOT what was asked for.
The photograph which I was working from had a small smile curling up on Rapunzel's mouth. This nuanced little bit was the fine line between the sweetness asked for and my usual soul eater methodology.
There was also a lovely balance of orange and purply-blue in Rapunzel's coloring. Although, she does have some traces of black hair, the vast sea of her is filled with blond and white. The cool places in her were luscious pink browns and blues.
