The Selfish Giant Project Progress

So I’m currently working on illustrating Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Selfish Giant’, a project which I started during my time at university. There are quite a few things about the project I want to change and so I’ve sort of gone back to my sketchbook to work on colour and composition for the project just so I can be better prepared when creating the actual illustrations. For now here are a few sketchbook images of some paint experiments I’ve done for the image backgrounds, which were inspired by the images I had seen during my research into into medieval, and renaissance art, the work of Fra Angelico being a notable example. I will try to post more regular updates of the project as I continue working on it.
