Illustration Friday: Green


I'm still trying to make friends with guoache (even though I can't even spell it). Otherwise, this was fun. It almost turned out as a portrait of my own parents (who are not strawberries). They raised their share of teenagers, and from what I understand, it wasn't always peaches and cream.

Nice illo, good use of the anaogly of the green immature berries... it looks like your efforts with guaoche (I can't spell it either) are paying off.
