Learning to Paint – Birthday Card

A few weeks ago I decided to paint a birthday card for my Father in Law. I haven’t painted anything (except as an unwilling house decorator) since I left school. I drew a pencil outline by hand first then….coloured it in with water colours. I used a Letraset Promarker to fill in the lettering and here’s how the card came out. I think it took me about an hour start to finish.
