Cinderella Mix [feedly]



----
Cinderella Mix
// Deja View




A few pieces of art from the sixty-six year old Cinderella, a film whose success saved the Disney Studio.
The artwork above was done for a record album.You'd think that salmon pink as a base color might not look good, but it sure does here. The more obvious choice would have been a night blue.

A beautiful clean up drawing from an Eric Larson scene. Even if you had life action reference as a guide for the animation, this type of realism is VERY HARD to draw!!




A great Mary Blair piece. Two basic colors, blue and white with pink and yellow accents.



Even as black & white prints, still stunning.



I am not sure if this is her work as well, it might be by John Hench.



A cel from the Sweet Nightingale song sequence. A great example of reducing the complex human body to very simple, animatable forms.



Again, a very simple background, yet so effective. 



Actress Helene Stanley acts out a scene in which she is entering an imaginary coach that will take her to the ball. I don't know the name of the actress who plays the Fairy Godmother.
The following film still is from the same scene.




Some images Heritage Auctions.

Walter Stanford, animal and landscape paintings
Walter Stanford is a painter and illustrator based in North Carolina.

Stanford works in oil, acrylic and pastel, as well as in digital painting media (I believe the example images I've shown here are mostly if not all traditional media).

His painting and pasted subjects include landscapes with an emphasis on rocky creeks and farming, and his animal paintings frequently feature birds, most prominently owls.

The common element I see in all of his work is a fascination with the textural quality of his subjects, be it rocks in swiftly moving creeks or the ruffled feathers of a condor. He works with a vibrant but controlled palette, using color as well as value to move your eye through his compositions.
