Here's the finished version!
This was a project for my Watercolor class in which we were supposed to paint two scenes from a children's story. I picked The Pied Piper of Hamelin. Just to clarify, these are two separate scenes from the story, not two sequential pages.
I tried a simpler style, and I like how it turned out. It was a really fun project!
Hope you like it ^_^
And ere three shrill notes the pipe uttered,
You heard as if an army muttered;
And the muttering grew to a grumbling;
And the grumbling grew to a mighty rumbling;
And out of the houses the rats came tumbling:
Brothers, sisters, husbands, wives --
Followed the Piper for their lives.
From street to street he piped, advancing,
And step for step, they followed, dancing,
Until they came to the river Weser
Wherein all plunged and perished
Out came the children running.
All the little boys and girls,
With rosy cheeks and flaxen curls,
And sparkling eyes and teeth like pearls,
Tripping and skipping, ran merrily after
The wonderful music with shouting and laughter.
