After finishing the fourth cover for L.S. Gagnon’s The Little Witch series, I was asked to come up with some story illustrations for the four original novels to be used at a book convention to help promote the series. This illustration takes place in the magical world of Magia, which also appears inside the portal on the cover for book 2. I had to overcome a lot of challenges while creating this image, not the least of which was my lack of skill in landscape painting. I think I did a passable job in that department, and overall I’m pleased with the result.
