A spoiled princess gets a lot of praise for her paintings. Only the gardener seems to be unimpressed by her artistic skills. Upset by her subordinate’s behaviour the princess sends the gardener to prison in the castle's dungeon. Still she cannot shake off that feeling that the gardner was right and her drawings could be better. With a few hints from the gardener the princess discouvers for the first time that there is more fun in trying to improve her skills than to getting undeserved praise.
