A NEW FOLKLOREKerry Darlington's new Goldilocks and the Three Bears arrives after much anticipation from a successful Folklore series that has incorporated some of her most sought-after pieces such as Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and The Beast, Snow White & Rose Red and The Snow Queen.
THE TECHNIQUEKerry starts with a primed wooden board cut to the large size of the piece, she then proceeds to paint the main characters from the storyline, showcasing the moral reasoning behind the classical story and then paint in some background colour. The background colour in Goldilocks is particularly important to have an idea of which colours will be applied upon the next layer, and the 3D elements that follow.
PERSEVERANCEKerry has long had a strong affiliation with the details that build up her mythical-styled pieces, and since the standards have been raised during the progression of the Folklore Collection, her connection with the intricately made elements have only gotten stronger. As a result, the longevity of this piece from the brainstorming phase to practicalities, like elements-production, has been met with a conscientious mindset throughout.
