Fairytale assignment


For this assignment we had to choose a fairytale and create one illustration that best summarizes the story. The story is Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun, and the image is the father discovering that his boy has drowned in the ocean. Please let me know what you think! It's partially collage, the feathers are real, and I used a gloss medium for the water and the rest is acrylic. About 16''x20'' There is that white border you see at the top around the entire piece, but it wouldn't fit on the scanner.

Heather, this looks awesome! I love love the hands and the gesture you picked for the body. It's really expressive. The feathers work really well in the piece. Mixed media is so fun! Great job!
