Illustration Friday: baby


This is my illustration for this week's theme 'baby'. I did this in gouache on illustration board, which is a medium I haven't used in years. I have to say, it was not easy. I am so used to acrylic paint and canvas that I felt  I did not have much control.  I spent waaaay too much time on this little illo, but it was a great exercise. I'll definitely try gouache again. Practice makes perfect, right?

awww...she has a sweet expression. Gouache is always a finicky medium. It really did turn out very nicely, though!
