Transcript

  • 1. Basic Information  The Ugly Duckling was written by Hans Christian Andersen and was published by Morrow Junior Books.  It was received a Caldecott Honor in 2000.
  • 2. Style  The style of the Ugly Duckling would definitely be realism. In all of the illustrations the artist took their time to add realistic detail.  Looking at the illustrations is like looking at real life.  The images are so real and true.  It is like looking into nature.
  • 3. Media  The artists tends to use a lot of watercolor painting. This helps create the natural and realistic feel. There are not harsh lines or marks. It is more understated and soft like a baby duckling.  In the book, the illustrations are very soft and light.
  • 4. Line  The use of line in this story was to draw the readers attention where the illustrator wanted it.  In the majority of the pictures, the lines were soft and curved.  This was true because the illustrations most all included grass surrounding the ducklings and other images.  The use of these soft and curved lines helped make clear the style of the story as they made the illustrations more real.
  • 5. Shape  These illustrations consist of many curved and undefined shapes.  It gives the story the feel of nature and because the story takes place in nature this gives the story a very real feeling.  There are not any harsh lines used in the illustrations and this gives the shapes a more subtle feel.  The ducklings are soft and have round bodies.  And the grass is curved and angled.
  • 6. Color  The illustrator used the perfect colors for this story.  When looking at the pages the media used was watercolor painting which is traditionally pastel colors.  All the pictures had light hues to them.  The pictures did not have bright or bold colors to them, but rather a soft and delicate chroma.
  • 7. Texture  There was a lot of texture in these illustrations.  The artist added so much detail and texture to each of the pages.  When looking at the ducklings they all have lines for their feathers.  In the book it says that texture is defined as how the artist can communicate their tactical impression (Tunnel, pg. 36).  I think that the artist did a nice job with their use of texture and making these illustrations come alive.
  • 8. Composition  Personally I loved how this book was balanced.  The pictures were placed strategically so that nothing was blocked with words and all of the words were clear.  Some of the pages just seemed to frame the words as to draw the reader to the words and then to the illustration surrounding them.  It made for a good flow for the story and the reading of the story.
  • 9. Conclusion  I really enjoyed re- reading this story.  Personally I had not seen this particular version and I thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations.  The artist is incredibly talented to be able to pull off such amazingly beautiful and surprisingly realistic illustrations.
