About

you can tell a lot about a person by his or her posture.  and you can tell a lot about a person's character by his or her shoes.

there are currently 24 already britely-colored (in gouache, by me) faerie tale feet paintings in existence.  exploring my favorite faerie tales, books, & plays, the backgrounds are filled with icons from the original tales.  and just their shoes are there so you can step into the story for yourself!!

i've painted the series in gouache.  but the time has come for YOU to color your own!

using the original (now messy!!) pattern drawings used in the creation of said 24 paintings, i want to neatly re-trace them for YOU and present them in a lovely over*sized perfect*for*coloring book!!

my messy, but saved drawings used to create the faerie tale feet series.

14 faerie tale feet drawings will be included-- 13 crowd faves and one bonus one i'm not even going to talk about until you're holding this book in your hand!!  (#nospoilers)

coloring book will be 9x9" square, image sizes will be 8".

i'm only going to put one per page (just the title on the back) so you can take them out and share or frame them!  and of course i'll pick the best paper i can so it won't bleed through.

see?  won't mowgli be fun to color?!

you can browse the collection of faerie tale feet prints on my etsy site, www.halthegal.etsy.com

you can see the process & read about each of the characters at www.halthegal.wordpress.com

thank you for your support!  i know you'll enjoy coloring them and sharing them *almost* as much as i do!!

peace, love, & colour to you,

*halthegal.

Risks and challenges

i'll be balancing work at water of life, newlywedded*ness, and a few art shows between now and then. oh, and i'm going to india to start work on a documentary for a couple weeks before thanksgiving. but i WANT you to have this. my brain is bursting with the idea, and i need to help you fill those stockings! why should i be the only one having all the fun painting your favorite storybook characters? i can get it done. the coffee helps. thank you for making this a reality!
