  • Exposition
  • Rising Action #1
  • Rising Action #2
  • The Painter,a cruel boy who has the only color in the world, decided to walk through the woods.
  • Rising Action #3
  • The Painter meets a Squirrel, who wishes for his acorns to be colored so they can be more delicious for him and his family. The Painter gives the Squirrel's acorns color, but removes the color after a few minutes to cause the Squirrel sadness.  He then threw his bucket at the Squirrel, which caused the Squirrel's skittishness now. The bucket began to leak color on the ground.
  • Turning Point/Climax
  • On the forest path, the Painter came upon a tree that was weeping. The Painter asked the Tree what was wrong, and the Tree replied he wanted color for his apples so people would come and speak to him more. The Painter gave him color, and then took it back after a few minutes. The Tree was so devastated, it stopped bearing fruit and became known as the Weeping Willow, but its leaves remained green, for the leaking bucket dripped on the leaves.
  • Falling Action #1
  • When the Painter bumped into a Man, Man wished for his hair to be colorful. The Painter granted his wish and gave the Man color. The Man loved his hair so much, he immediately went to a pond to see his reflection and stayed there, and that is how vanity was made. The Painter took back the color, leaving the Man sobbing at the pond edge. The Painter didn't realize it, but his bucket was dripping even more color.
  • Little did the Painter know, but his bucket was leaking paint, leaving color all over the world. 
  • As the creatures of Earth realized they had color, they remembered what the Painter had done to them, giving them color for seconds then taking it away. They were angry, so they searched for him. Learning that the world had color, Painter went into hiding to take color from the world unseen, so that when he came out of hiding, they would need him.
