Tree of Life A view of the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom finishes up the Four Parks of Walt Disney World in Watercolor series from Steve’s Sketchbook. As with the artwork from Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney-MGM Studios (or Disney’s Hollywood Studios, if you prefer), this Animal Kingdom artwork was meant to invoke the feel of the park rather than to present a photo-realistic look at the park. To accomplish that, I chose this view of the Tree of Life as seen across the Discovery River.
Sort of Like the Old Days The Chinese Theater at the end of Hollywood Boulevard at Disney-MGM Studios is the newest in the Walt Disney World watercolor series from Steve’s Sketchbook. Yes, the park is known as Disney’s Hollywood Studios now. But I like to think of this as being the old days with the original name. One way you can tell this is from the old days is because the Earfful Tower is still there.
Main Street and Castle A stylized watercolor view of Main Street USA and Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is from Steve’s Sketchbook. I had an idea to do a series of watercolor-style pieces of the four Walt Disney World theme parks. Why not start with the first park to open chronologically? Of course, that would be the Magic Kingdom. I did not want to do some sort of photorealistic artwork, because I could just post a photo that I have taken and accomplish the same thing.
