Cinderella: A Children’s Opera Performance Artwork
Much of the work that I create for Annapolis Opera has more of a serious tone, but their annual children’s opera always allows me to expand into more colorful palettes and develop a fun illustration.
For their performance of Cinderella, I highlighted the key elements of the story that are easily recognizable by audiences of any age. Cinderella’s glass slipper sits at the forefront, while the famous pumpkin carriage is silhouetted in the background.
Aside from creating the glass look for the shoe, I enjoyed building out the brushes that I used to make the starry patterns and sparkles that help to show the magic of the tale.
