Painting a Day, Day 24

Betty and Perry's Basil Plant, 5"x7", gouache on paper

I was delighted and challenged when Perry sent the photo of their basil plant. Leaves drive me crazy! They are so hard to keep track of when they're up close. I have the same trouble with too many folds on fabric. I'm afraid it uses that part of my brain that's supposed to do Algebra and know direction without a compass... Well...Van Gogh had his problems, too, I always say. :-)

Don't know if I like Gouache. But, I won't give up on it. Will try again in more optimal conditions. I'm not thrilled with today's results, but can be gratified to have fulfilled the commitment.
Peace...and Basil to you all. Thanks for checking in.
