Sleeping Beauty by Charlie-Bowater Sleeping Beauty by Charlie-Bowater
Back when I painted my Snow White piece I hinted I might turn it into some sort of Fairy Tale series... and so I guess I am!

My take on Sleeping Beauty. I had oodles of fun with all of those patterns, not quite so sure my hand did...

Limited Edition hand signed prints are available through my Etsy; www.etsy.com/uk/listing/160028…

It is really gorgeous. I really love the Disney Princess and I tell, I already saw a lot of Sleeping Beauty, but they were not so beautiful as yours. Master job.

Hey, great work! I hope you don't mind when I use it as an illustration on my blog. (phanwelten.com) The article is about Fairytales by Disney and their actual Stories. Of course all the credits will go to you ;)

Hey, I think your work is amazing. If you would prefer I didn't I totally understand. Would I be able to use some of your fairy-tale based paintings for a photography panel I am doing at school which will be based on fairy-tales? Thanks and this painting is amazing :)

Oh my god, this is BEYOND beautiful, definitely worth the pain in your hand, haha. I love the soft colours and the beautiful details. All the patterns are gorgeous. It's nice to see artwork that's so detailed and filled with depth. I can't wait to see your others in the series!

It's a beautiful piece. You've humanized her so much from the cold pose she's so commonly put into. Yet youp've still managed to maintain her elegance. She almost appears langarous in form, with her cascading hair, and limbs draped accross the bed. Even her lower half though obscured emphasises the same flow as the upper. Moreover her entire form is emphasised so well by her surroundigns which give a wonderful compiosition. The curtains up high flowing downwards, subtly broken up by the patterning of the turquise drape, and the baroque carvings behind her. I haven't even touched on the pallate it's so delicate without sacrificing all colour she still seems appropriately lifelike. The pastels (if that's the word I want) are so well chosen.
