A Photoshop Painting, Sortof

I'm not sure what I think of this little color study I did in Photoshop. The subject matter is from a short story called "Marcovaldo," and I chose to illustrate a moment when several working-class folks gather the mushrooms that are growing in the patch of grass by their tram stop. (They put the mushrooms in their umbrellas--cool visual possibilities.) As for the drawing itself, I don't like it, but I'll post it up here for you to critique. I think I will do this again, when I have time. I'm not sure if it's my drawing skills or my technique in Photoshop (er, both!)...I had a bit of fun doing it, though, so if nothing else it can go in the "experience" file! --L
