‘Splitting the picture as before, (see page 25 below) and by swapping the pieces around, the Stepmother’s flesh is now textured like her blue dress.  The blue texture has also been applied to Snow White’s skin.  There seems to be some sort of connective structure going on, which may be better expressed as line.”

“This experiment is about trying to get the right tonal values in pastels.  There is a difficulty in trying to recreate the colour of the wall, which is a very unusual shade of grey.  It seems to have a slight purple/pink tone in it which is really hard to capture.” (page 27)

” The image (Page 28 see below) has been to negative and the yellow carpet is now an unusual shade of blue which is yet again proing difficult to get exactly right.”

By splitting the photo into four sections and translating into four unequal portions, a new composition emerges.  The blue of the stepmother’s dress is now used to denote her flesh.  The yellow of the carpet becomes Snow White’s dress, and the redness of the chair becomes her flesh.  In the last portion Snow White and her stepmother both have blue flesh: the grey of the wall is now used  for Snow White’s sleeve and dress.
