Here's my illustration, there are a few things that I went about differently as a beginner and trying to stay within my comfort zone. I felt comfortable having outlines and trying to paint within them, so i didn't do the layering from lightest to darkest- I plan to do that next when I am confident of doing so.

I had actually started with the illustration before I looked up the class- I had already directly sketched my idea on the final Gouache Paper, so i ended up having to outline the final lines with a brushpen and Ink so that i don't miss them and so that I could still erase the line i didn't need. I painted over these outlines and filled in the colors in the particular sections.

Color Rough 2 came closer to my liking but I still happened to change my mind about some...

Lighter colors first- here there's a patchy effect on the wall because I didn't keep the progressing part of the paint wet during application :(
