Qingxuan Lin Prose works

Children's Publishing

Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I got this commission job from a Chinese publisher, this publisher collects proses written by a late famous Chinese proser, Qingxuan Lin, to horned him. So this prose collection book includes twelve proses and these proses are all about his childhood memories. So I use a more poetic way to paint, trying to convey the beauty of nature and the happiness of childhood before.

How was the illustration used:
These are inside illustrations for this prose book which is suited for 9-14 age children to read.

How did you make this work:
I was touched when I read these articles before I paint, which resonate me and make me remember my childhood. So I generated many interesting ideas and made sketches in different compositions, then I discussed these sketches with the publisher, after this I did many colour tests and paint it in Photoshop.
