Two princesses and a prince

This is a painting that a friend ordered. I told her i would do something that would tell a story of her family... so... the cashew fruit family representing her family. She wrote on her instagram that she has "two princesses and a prince", so that's the name of the painting...

This is 24x36 on UART, grit 500. Took me approximately 17 hours (spaced out in 4 nights).

The colors are a little different than in real life, but you get the idea...
