David Hall Story Art Stills - Alice on the River Bank

We continue our establishing shot, now we can see Alice at the river bank with Dinah, trailing her hand in the water.  This still is labeled '3' and is signed David Hall in the lower right corner.  This still and the one from yesterday are clearly watercolors, I would love to see them in their full color renditions.
Fortunately the above watercolor was reprinted in the David Hall book, although slightly cropped.
The next still is a closeup of Alice gazing at her reflection in the water, holding a flower in her left hand.  This still is from a pencil drawing.  You'll see in later drawings the watermark of the paper in some of the shaded areas of the drawings.

Are all of the images from this set previously unknown to you? Or have you seen some of them in books (or whatever)?

Imagine how different a 1930's or 40's "Alice" movie would have been... what a fascinating idea!

Some are previously published, I'll try to point those out when they show up. Lots were published in that book from the 1980s, as well as in Surprise Package.
