Layout & Background: The Spindle Of A Spinning Wheel

   The plot point of Sleeping Beauty pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel has been a part of the story since its inception.  I don't know why, but I've always assumed that was a Disney addition in the 1959 animated classic.  Surprising, yes?
   Here are the initial layout and finished background of the bonfire of spinning wheels scene.



   Look at the amazing and classic Eyvind Earle colors.  Truly ahead of his time.  If you like his work, make sure to check out his amazing castle paintings.  What  tremendous contributions to the Disney company...
