Curiouser and Curiouser

This is the piece I did for the Curiouser and Curiouser show at the Gallery Nucleus back in February. I chose to illustrate Alice eating the two sides of the mushroom, as prescribed by the hookah-smoking caterpillar. I wanted to model Alice off of Alice Liddell, the little girl Lewis Carroll wrote the book for. Done in watercolor and acrylics.

A close up of the caterpillar's face.I couldn't find my pallets...

This is absolutely gorgeous. I must applaud the fact that you use watercolors. they seem so amazingly hard for me to use. not to mention im always iffy about their durability... perhaps i just dont know which to use.

mind if i ask what your watercolor brand is?
