I have painted a banner with my daughters name on, carried by bluebirds. It will be above her bed once I get the furniture back in place.
I started by drawing a rough sketch, you can just about see it.
I painted it pink to match the castle. I mixed up 5 shades to get the shadow and highlight effects.
Next I painted some cute little bluebirds,
and then some ribbons.
Finally I painted in her name. As you can see I'm not very good at lettering, good thing there's only 3 letters
Here's the finished banner.
I decided to paint some birds. You can see in this pic the eraser marks behind the castle where I was going to paint a rainbow but changed my mind. I will have to paint over it with blue again.
I painted some birds,
flowers and insects.
