Ariel – Little Mermaid – Work-in-ProgressJasmine Becket-Griffith
Work-in-progress! Another new Disney painting, very early stages – featuring Ariel from The Little Mermaid – this time for the Pop Gallery & Bradford Exchange part of Disney. I’ve basically “sketched” (in brown, grey, black & white paint & water, with a very tiny brush) out the scene, mostly focusing on the details of the main characters – Ariel, Sebastian and Flounder. I’ve refined this “sketch” in paint several times, covering up what I don’t want with opaque paint, strengthening lines I do want in darker paint. Now I’m starting to lay in washes of watered layers of colour, mostly for myself just to figure out where I’m going with the colour palette & figuring out my light source (mostly coming in from the top down through the grotto underwatr), etc. I’ve done a bit of shading on Ariel, but nothing much more than that. Many more hours to go, I’ll post another work-in-progress pic later. This is one of the pieces that will debut at my May 3rd event at Pop Gallery Orlando here at Downtown Disney in Florida! The original painting & giclees will be available at Pop Gallery, giclees & other merchandise will also be available online & through the Hamilton Collection/Bradford Exchange. This is an original acrylic painting, 16×20, will be in a big gorgeous ornate frame and priced at $6400 – if you are interested in purchasing the original please contact Pop Gallery at [email protected] or call them at: 407-827-8200 and ask to be put on the Jasmine VIP List for “Part of Your World” – Jasmine’s Little Mermaid painting.
