The image below of Jack & the Beanstalk was painted after researching the skills & talents of UK illustrator Graham Philpot (can that be his real surname??).
Graham has a beautiful style with bold, structured, graphic lines. I was introduced to his work as a kid with the book - The Wacky Book of Witches, followed by - Fairytale Frolics (both books have since joined my library of inspirational illustrations!!) Both books contain immense detail per image with his incredible eye for character creation!
Below are the pencil sketch and the finished painting in watercolour, bodycolour & colour pencil.
