I wondered, back when I started this painting, how long it would take me to complete it – it turns out 6 months.
I am pretty happy with it, it really cheers up the room, (even if the hook it is on turns out to be slightly off centre – I hope that I can fix it in under 6 months).
I did use a slightly unusual tool when I was creating this work of art. I knew I would have difficulty painting a really thin line with a steady enough hand, but I really wanted to add an outline between the petals. I ended up using a purple sharpie. I hope it doesn’t fade quicker than the rest of the painting.
Even though the judges on one of our favourite shows, Home Made, (the kids love it) advise against home made art, I think this one suits our bedroom just fine – perhaps because our bedroom is so average suburban to start with.
Do you have any home made art on your walls?
