New Work: Thousandfurs Posted on 08 Jun 2015

Thousandfurs oil painting by artist Wylie Beckert

11x17" oil, acrylic, and watercolor on paper

This is a piece from a couple months back that never made it onto the blog: a painting for the Grimm show at Helikon Gallery. It's an illustration for the Grimm fairytale "Thousandfurs" (also known by its alternate title "The King who Wished to Marry His Daughter" - in case you were wondering whether or not this is one of the stories that Disney will reboot with cute animal sidekicks and catchy musical numbers).

The finished pencil art, 11x17"

Featured in the fairytale: a dress as golden as the sun; a dress as silver as the moon; a dress as bright as the stars; and a cloak made from the fur of every kind of animal (pictured!)

The show runs through July 10 in Denver - if you find yourself in the area, be sure to check it out in person!
