I did my homework!

Remember the botanical illustration class I said I was taking? Remember the watercolor of the onion that was our homework? Remember how I didn't want to try to paint the "miles of veins" on the onion skin?

Well, I am here to tell you that I did complete that project. However, rather than try to actually, you know, paint on the minutely miniscule veins, I just used a really tiny (.005) brown Micron pen. Hey, I never claimed to be a purist after all.

Here's the end result. If you squint, it looks more like an actual onion...which is kind of ironic, because onions make you squint in real life...
