A Wrinkle in Time - 'Mock' Book Cover

I'm taking little break between StarSpun chapters before the chapter 5 launch this Saturday. For fun, I decided to try my hand at a 'mock' book cover for a book that is very near and dear to me since I was a child: A Wrinkle in Time.

The idea for this project was to paint a cover for this classic children's science fiction book (originally published in 1962) in the style of today's middle grade book covers. I was also very focused on keeping the visuals clean and simple while conveying the mood and spirit of this incredible and mystical book.

Cover painting, mock-up with title text, and process images are below:
