One of my new illustration assignments (not related to the Vikings assignment). The objective was to use gauche paints and illustrate yourself in the form of a children book character. I decided I wanted to be a little pixie! I really enjoyed painting with green - it was so soothing! And I have a new love for gauche!

Finished piece:

Paper: Strathmore Bristol smooth 8x10''
