Messing around with bits of paper (as is my wont) and paint, experimenting with bringing together a lot of the stuff I do. Particularly for use in illustration/book design. So here's the first experiement, a book-cover-style illustration for The Secret Garden. I put down a base layer of very washy paint; put in the mid-ground with loose tissue-collage and then build the foreground up with a combination of more careful tissue collage and paint, with a little touch of patterned paper for Mary Lennox's crown of flowers.
