This image was inspired by background paintings done by Eyvind Earle for
the Walt Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty. The story behind this image
is about a boy playing in the snow, watching how his leaf-parachute
dances in the wind, and making the most of a situation that most people
would not find joyful. I attempted to produce the simple yet detailed
brush strokes seen in the Sleeping Beauty film. I also focused on
keeping strong silhouettes, while creating movement for the eye to dance
around the picture in theme of the dancing leaf-parachute.
