Still can't believe I made this lol !!!

Now everyone who knows me knows I cannot draw for toffee and that is no exaggeration so I still cannot believe I made this???My son had a day off so I had a one to one and this is the result--no drawing -I used panpastels for the background,the tree in black acrylic was made using the paintbrush flat and just wiggled about and the point for branches,the birds were made using the end of the brush,stippled white acrylic on edge of cut and dry foam for clouds and the bushes were black acrylic on kitchen roll-not brilliant,couple of blobs and maybe basic but totally proud of result.

  1. Oh my goodness Carol, this is awesome and I love it. I can't draw for toffee either, but no way could I achieve a tree like this, not problem with the PP background but that's as far as I could go.
