Muddy

Muddy

Taking a break from my big painting project - this little illustration is for Illustration Friday theme, "Muddy". I think this is a bit of a self-portrait. I don't think I liked getting dirty when I was a little girl, though eventually I became a tomboy.

This is a pencil sketch colorized in PhotoShop with watercolor brushes.

Wonderful expression on her face, and I really really like the mud on her boots: it doesn't look flat, it looks thick and sticky. Just like mud.
