The creation of “The Little Mermaid” much like “Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland”, presented special technical and aesthetic challenges for Thom that were not present in most of the other Disney paintings. Thematically, this film deals with the clash between two worlds and how to best integrate them together. So it was with the painting. Thomas had to bring the undersea world of Ariel’s childhood into peace with the land-bound life she so longed for with her beloved, Prince Eric. He felt the sea life at the bottom of the composition did this, allowing both parts of Ariel’s life, past and future, in all their regal and colorful glory.
Thom has not deviated from the fantastic panoramic narratives that he has told so well in the Disney Dreams Collection releases. In The Little Mermaid you will find some of the most beloved and villainous characters from the movie including Ariel, Prince Eric, Sebastian, Flounder, Ursula, King Triton, Scuttle and Ariel’s sisters.
