One of my all time favourite authors in Kate Morton, I really love her style of writing and how you can just loose yourself in her books. At University in my last semester we where aloud to choose what we wanted to Illustrate and set our own briefs so for one of mine I decided to look at Kate Morton's short story within "The forgotten garden", "The Crones eyes". I loved the imagery of the landscape and the beginning paragraph of the princess running away from the palace and stumbling upon a cottage, the crones cottage. This imagery inspired me to create this illustration. I enjoyed creating this illustration especially the trees!
