SNOW WHITE: Dwarfs' Cottage

OK, a brief break from POPPINS. Ever been to a fragrance counter, and the salesperson had you sniff coffee beans to clear your head?

Same idea here.

With the incredible intensity of color in the POPPINS backgrounds, seeing this SNOW WHITE view of the dwarfs cottage is refreshing.

The muted earth tones of this background were mirrored by a rainbow of subtleties in the animation color palettes.

Both great films, both wondrous artistic achievements, but realized through very different stylistic approaches.

Heigh ho!
