Companion piece to my first Rapunzel painting [http://www.redbubble.com/people/painted-lizard/...] and is also done in the style of Arthur Rackham, but my own composition and take on the classic Rapunzel story instead of a master study.

This piece is set several years after the first one, and Rapunzel, who has gotten sick and tired of waiting to be rescued, has decided to take measures into her own hands. Literally. This is the moment right before he captor falls to her doom.

I had the most fun doing the books and the stars, I hid a few of my own favorite constellations in her painted ceiling.

Painted with Winsor & Newton paints on 300 lb Cold Press paper.
Drawn in pencil first, blocked out the white with masking fluid and then slowly built up the layers with washes.
Actual painting is about 8×14 inches

Hey, I’m Liz! I’m a 21 Year old Illustration Major at KCAD. I’ve always wanted to go to art school, and now I’m living my dream. However, said dream is pretty expensive and I’m hoping to help pay off my student loans by making some money doing what I love through RB.

    I like where you’re taking the story :) Wonderful detail in those books and a nice touch, including some of your favourite constellations of stars in the ceiling.

  • Thank you so much! Princesses who waited to be rescued never made any sense to me haha. Thank you! :)
