This is my main transcription I did a few years ago.  I got quite a lot from this image, which is part of a set.  This one was at the Whitworth Gallery Manchester at the time and captured my imagination.

I traced the outline of the picture to see what possibilities the shapes offered.

The basic outlines of the figures give me a clearer idea of the  picture’s  composition.

By stretching and elongating the shapes, Snow White especially takes on a different aspect when her squatness is taken away and she becomes equal in height to her stepmother.

To be continued tomorrow
