Inspired by a book

Happy Wednesday!
It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter challenge blog and this time we want to see something that's "Inspired by a book".

This beautiful Owl Whisperer image immediately got me thinking about the book series that started my passion for reading (especially fantasy books). And it was David Eddings The Belgariad series - I just loved those. It might be that my taste has changed a little since but I'm totally going to read those books again some day ūüėä


So this image reminds me of Polgara from those stories and if you check out the book cover of 'Polgara the Sorceress' you understand why. I own that book so I wanted to follow that colour scheme and add the tree. Everything else is coloured by alcohol markers except the sky that I did with Distress Inks.
