Aschenputtels Stepsisters by fireburner543 Aschenputtels Stepsisters by fireburner543
‘The merchant then married his mistress, who already had two children, named Carolina and Aurelia, both of whom were of similar age to the merchant’s daughter. Though these fair skinned maidens were very beautiful and fair of face, one with long black hair, the other with long copper hair, their hearts were as cold as their emerald green eyes.
The merchant’s fortune was diminished because it was squandered by the vain and selfish step sisters. He was forced to sell off all his stock and release all his servants, so the family had to do all their own chores. This was a poor time for the little step child, for during every dinner, Carolina and Aurelia would say, “Must the stupid little wench eat at the table with us? She belongs in the kitchen, tending to our meals and washing our plates and cutlery!” This was encouraged by the sisters’ mother and by her own father.’



This work was inspired by the Alphonse Mucha’s works from the flower series; ‘lily’s’ [link] ‘Carnation’ [link]

Originally I was going to make them at the ball, but their dresses were too plain and there were parts I disliked about the dresses. Though I am pleased with Aurelia’s (the red heads) face and her malicious look.

Materials; watercolours, felt tipped pens and acrylic paints.

What fine work!
This is a wonderful melding of
DIS-ney with the original Aschenputtel
by Grimm.
I would love to see more of the story as
you've illustrated it. These sisters must
be as sadistic to cinder-Ella as they are
nice to look at.
Good stuff!

When I paint, it rarely gets on the canvas it ends up all over me, thus my mothers ban on painting unless it's outside.
