Illustration Friday - LIQUID

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with liquid silver drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
- Langston Hughes.

This week's topic on Illustration Friday is LIQUID. 
Pencil sketch. . . 
First layer of acrylic paint. . . 
Handcut raindrops from pretty junk papers. . . 
Sprayed some sparkly spray on the raindrops for some subtle shimmer.
