Artist's description:

This painting is part of my Fairytale series and is based on the popular story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

The whole fairytale series evolved from a couple of pages in my sketchbook in which I was doodling ideas for a darker, more mature take on Goldilocks' tale. I really liked the idea of using realistic depictions of bears in the story. They're wild animals, mysterious, dangerous and unpredictable.

The painting captures the moment when Goldilocks first encounters the bears. I wanted it to be dramatic, dynamic and have a real sense of movement. The intensity of Goldilocks' blue cloak adds further drama to the painting and also gives the character a strong presence. I used washes and paint splatter to further accentuate the movement and dynamism of the moment. I also exaggerated the size difference between Goldilocks and the Bear to make the Bear look more powerful and intimidating.

This one was really fun to paint. It allowed me to explore new territory and be more expressive with my painting whilst still focusing on telling a story.
