Childhood Memory Project

My first project for Illustration 1. Illustrate a childhood memory. A favorite and cherished memory I have is helping my grandmother bake her delicious apple cake. This was my first time working in Gouache paint. I'm not sure I like it yet. It is certainly different than working with acrylics or watercolor. Hopefully as the semester continues I will learn how to better 'tame' this medium. As for how the final came out...I'm content enough with it. I'm afraid if I fiddle anymore with it I'll just get frustrated and mess it up.

Composition: Gouache on Bristol Paper

Final: Gouache on Illustration Board
