Suur Maalritoo by Si3art Suur Maalritoo by Si3art
*Suur maalritöö* Sorry, but DA doesnt let me put "öö"s in the headline... It means "The big painting".

:bulletpurple:Contest: Local Folklore [link]
:bulletpurple:Media: watercolors, black marker no. 0.05, white acrylic
:bulletpurple:Size: A4
:bulletpurple:Time: ~9 hours

This has been my favorite local "fairy tale" of all times. :giggle:
Book by Ellen Niit, illustrations by Edgar Valter.
The story is written in rhymes.

Siis segas meister värve veel,
täis värvimise lusti meel.
Ja kui see töö nii käis ja käis,
sai maail lõpuks värve täis.



Its about how the world was all in grey tones and everything was mixed up with everything. XD The people complained about it and then! an artist appeared with his colors. He had three primary colors with him.

And so on one by one he painted things colorful, mixed them together (got the colors purple, green and orange)

When everything had gotten a color of its own, people started complaining that the world is too colorful now. Then the artist took all the colors he had left, mixed them all together and got the color- white. :giggle:

He painted a lil´ here and there into white and finally threw the remaining white paint into the air. It started snowing. :)

So those ppl who didnt like the too colorful world could rest theyre eyes from colors in winter. ;)



I love that story and the illustrations. :love:
You can see all of the original illustrations of the book here-->[link]

All of the estonians should know this story. :D

Ma seda raamatut nüüd küll kahjuks ei tea, aga mulle sellegipoolest väga meeldib see pilt. Mulle meeldivad need värvid väga ja samuti ka need rahvapärased sümbolid taustal.
Eriti jäi mulle silma aga maalri kaval nägu. Ta näeb välja täpselt niisugune, nagu ma üht heasüdamlikku maailmaparandajast muinasjututegelast ette kujutaksin - natukene eriskummaline, kohe pilkupüüdvalt erinev ning suure naeratusega näol. :aww:
Väga hea töö, ühesõnaga, ja ma üritan ka mõnel päeval ehk kõnealuse loo läbi lugeda. ;)
Edu võistlusel! :thumbsup:

Wow... Vot see on väärt comment üle hulga aja! :love:

Huh, njah. Võibolla kõik polegi näinud/kuulnud sellest raamatust. :shrug: Heh, see anti ikkagi välja 1985... Niiet see on väga vana. ;p Aga ikkagi huvitav ja ikkagi minu lemmik. :nod:

Ma arvan et seda raamatut on igast raamatukogust võimalik laenutada kui pakub huvi. ;)


Thank you very much! :icontardhugplz:

Pole tänu väärt. :giggle:
Ja eks ma siis järgmisel korral raamatukokku sattudes otsin selle raamatu üles. ;)
