Still life based on a fairy tale "Cinderella"

in elegance •  2 months ago

Hello! Today I want to show you my new still life based on a fairy tale "Cinderella".

Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper, is a folk tale wich has which has thousands of variants around the world.
The earliest Cinderella story- is the legend of Rhodopis, recounted by the Greek geographer, about a slave girl who marries the king of Egypt.

The first literary European version of the story was published in Italy, but the most popular story was wrote by Charles Perrault.

In the still life I combined little decorative pumpkin with a crown on the pumpkin tail, as a symbol of the royal power.

From below I placed a small white pillow with a ruby crystal slipper.
I decided to supplement this composition with a pocket watch-as a symbol of time given to Cinderella by a fairy godmother, and small wooden figurine which created with the help of the Pyrography.
The blue drapery, which unites the whole still life, reminds me of beautiful Cinderella's dress
The photos of the drawing process:
I hope you like my idea!

Thank you for watching!

Hello Tais, an amazing drawing very well finished and I really like the detail of the clock and what I think is a slope, very good.
