Birthday card

Comments

That's really charming and appealing Diana. Lovely work.

You’ve painted this beautiful robin with such aplomb Diana. He is such a perky looking chap. Your sister will be delighted with this.

Beautifully painted Diana.

Beautiful watercolour Diana, bet your sister will be thrilled, I really like the flash of red breast against your trademark greys, just how you notice them in the wild.

Beautiful, like the freshness about the painting

It’s a super painting Diana, lovely card!

Stylish painting with so much character.

Thanks Jim. I’m not 100% surethat some of the looser areas of my work aren’t down to laziness 😁 Thank you Carole. I have tremendous trouble choosing cards in shops ! Thank you very much Nicola I appreciate that. Hello Margaret and thank you . I was pleased with the outcome though ,as ever, there are a couple are areas Im not happy with 😁 Thank you Anjana. They are such cheering little birds. I love to see them in the garden but I don’t get many birds due to having an enormous cat. He has more bells round his neck than a Morris dancer . Thank you a Romila. That’s a great compliment. Morning Alan and thanks again. I know that the recipient will be very appreciative.

Thank you Stephen. It was a change to paint on a smaller scale.

A really beautiful card Diana.

Thank you Paul. There is something very appealing about a robin. Morning Dennis and thanks again. Thank you Sandra. I was a bit nervous posting it so put it in its envelope inside another , larger envelope.

Absolutely great result. I'm very impressed with your economy of style. I would be tempted to fiddle about & loose all the freshness.

Thank youBrian. I agree, it’s so tempting to fiddle.

This is wonderful - love the grey background colour scheme - really brings out the robin.

Thank you Ceri. The recipient sent me a photo of it framed on her wall
