Following on from the recent birthday card drawing which I enjoyed making more than I first thought I would, I decided to continue the painting experiment. I was about to go away with Carole and Keira for a holiday on the Cote d’Azur and when we got there I tweeted an offer to paint a postcard for anyone who would like one. Six people kindly got in touch so I bought a few brushes in Nice and the experiment continued… Watch this space.
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.
