Raspberry Ice, Cakes & Tea-Bert&Fox



"A face in the picture would bother me, so I'd rub it out with the turpentine and do it over." -Norman Rockwell

Bert's face bothered me so I did it again and added the great Milt Kahl fox. I didn't like that the first Bert had no interaction with anything and kind of stared out to nowhere. This is a much better and more playful scene. When I'm working on art pieces and I get really discouraged I will look up quotes from people like Norman Rockwell, Pablo Picasso and Walt Disney. Some of Norman Rockwell's and Picasso's are my favorites.

Raspberry Ice, Cakes & Tea-Finished

So I'm finally finished! I pretty much got to do everything that I wanted to on this piece but, to be honest, I could have kept going. I wanted to do an entire carousel, the barnyard animals, Bert as a One-man band, Mary sitting on a cloud with her umbrella propped into the cloud, Mary Poppins coming out of the sky (using fishing wire), the Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Band...oh the endless possibilities! But then there is that pesky due date. This was a dream to do and I'm bummed it's over. I'll be dropping it off at the Walt Disney Archives this week so I hope everyone there enjoys it. I love Brittney Lee's paper art and artwork so part of me wants it to break a little bit so they will have to call her over to come fix it;)

Raspberry Ice, Cakes & Tea

The scene is finished so I decided to take some pictures before I set the characters. The Penguins Pavilion is tiny and is equipped with an entire kitchen inside! A sink full of soapy dishes, fish on ice, an oven, cabinets and drawers, a cutting board, a pink decorated cake and a picture hanging on the wall of Berts chalk scene they jumped into.
My photography skills are atrocious and I even set up a studio in my garage and studied lots of tutorials on how to photograph 3D art. The colors don't look like this in person but oh well. Better luck next time.
