I worked on the illustration today. I decided to do all the work on the veggies and basket. I used a variety of colors to color in the vegetables. I wanted to make them look like they had some depth. You can't use just one color as it will make the object look flat. So when I did the lettuce, I put down a yellow/green and then went over it with a blue/green. I decided to make a little shadows with a brown. I still will ad more detail to the vegetables as time goes on.
I also have a base down for the stuffed animal. The next time you see it, it will have more depth.
Try using a variety of colors. It is fun and anything goes.
