Art: “Cinderella Redux”

(Update-going to a Private Collection-1/28/2013)

Redux is a Latin word that means “brought back” or “revisited.”  Frequently I come up with a design that I want to take even further and make it even “more” than it was in the first artwork. In this case the original Cinderella in my previous post was a 4″ x 6″ OSWOA (always photo album size). Done in colored pencils and graphite on watercolor paper (See photo below).

Sometimes one will sell and I’ll be ask if I do another, or it’s just that I like it so much I’ll keep doing one similar on different backgrounds, or in different scenarios.

In the “Redux” (photo top of page), Cinderella is done with acrylics and colored pencils, then placed on an acrylic painted background, on a 7″ x 9″ canvas panel.  Here I was able to further develop both the character and the background. I played around with a darker color palette. Amazing how different that can make it.

“Cinderella Redux” is signed, titled and dated “2013” on the back of the canvas panel.
