Under the wire for IF'sword this week 'fluid' and late to the party over at Paint Party Friday. I finished up the sketch yesterday, then painted it today (and started to run out of daylight ergo the color distortion on the right lower corner when I snapped this pic)
SO fun working on this piece, inspired by my take on a scene from one of Grimm's fairytales, aka "The Shoes That Danced to Pieces". I can only imagine how the the princesses' fluid and graceful movements must have deteriorated as they danced the night away!
This is one of my favorite fairytales of the Brothers Grimm - I've always loved the idea of the princesses sneaking out to a magical underground castle to dance with their princes until 3:00 in the morning, then going home happy & tired with their shoes worn out!
