David Hall Story Art Stills - Alice and the Mouse in the Pool of Tears

Alice flounders around in the Pool of Tears with the Mouse seen at the extreme upper left.  The pool is surprisingly stormy.  This watercolor is signed in the lower left and labeled '43' also in the lower left.
This detail of the watercolor focuses on Alice and is labeled '43A'.
This detail of the watercolor focuses on the Mouse - who did not make it into the final 1951 version of the film - and is labeled '43B'.
Fortunately, this water color is partially reproduced in the David Hall book, and appears to be not so much a Pool of Tears, but a Pool of Orange Crush (or perhaps marmalade).  It is a double-page spread, so there is a gutter in the middle, and they only produced the to 3/4 of the image, but at least we get a feel for the colors of the piece!

It sure is an eye-opener to see the picture in black and white and THEN seeing it in unexpected, vivid color!
