Our new fairy tale is The Twelve Brothers by The Brothers Grimm. The Brothers GRIMM live up to their name. I DO NOT LIKE this fairy tale – BAAAAD king wanting to kill his own kind, evil x 12. We are supposed to read it 3 times. (Thank goodness 3 and not 12!).
I know, I know . . . all fairy tales have curses and evil and such but for some reason this one unsettled me even though it has the proverbial happy ending. Maybe there are tooooooo many brothers . . . Maybe it is tooooooo parallel to the murdering of “own kind” all over the world . . .Maybe I’m getting verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry sensitive in my “old age” . . . just maybe . . .
Even the drawing part is overwhelming to me since there are 12 prince brothers to draw.
(This “posing prince” is Carla Sonheim’s son Wes!)
Our first drawing assignment is 24 quick sketches of PRINCELY POSES, courtesy of Wes.
