DA2000 – Final Project.
As stated in the post that precedes this, I did not choose to tell the story of The Paper Menagerie as part of my final project. Rather, I decided on a classic tale that is short and simple: The tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter.
This American literature classic tells the tale of a naughty and greedy rabbit, Peter, who went against the warnings of his mother and enter Mr. McGregor’s garden to have a feast of radishes, lettuce and french beans. Spotted by Mr. McGregor who was out to nab him, Peter ran and hid away in fear. The story had a happy ending in that Peter managed to make a successful escape back home.
The tale of Peter Rabbit personifies animals as its main characters, and is staged in nature – Mr. McGregor’s farm, produce from the farm, a big fir tree as Peter’s home et cetera.
The following are images I took throughout the course of working on this project which could help examine/ visualise the scenes in the tale:
Aside from using the photos I took as reference, I searched online for other photo references that would help with the creation of compositions. Some examples include:
