Snow White: Part of the Fairytale Reimagining Series by Renae Metaxas (Colour Me Ren)

Fairest: A Snow White Reimagining

The second artwork I created for the Winsor and Newton ProMarker range campaign was a take on my favourite princess, Snow White 🍎 After delving into the different variations of the Snow White fairytale, I was instantly captivated by the Greek rendition, where the sun represents the magic mirror, Snow White’s first poisoning is not with enchanted laces or combs, but rather a ring, and instead of an apple, she succumbs to poisoned grapes. My Snow White design and the artwork’s lighting subtly reference this version whilst endeavouring to remain faithful to the more well-known poisoned apple interpretation.
