So, I'm not really a painter, I'm more of a sewer, and yet my first post shoowing off any kind of thing I made is painting.
I painted with totally normal watercolors on a canvas I got at the 1-store, it's rather small (in some pictures you can see my hand for size reference). I made it for my dad, because ha said, he didn't want a present and so I said (as a joke at the time) that I'd paint him a picture as I used to do when I was still about 5 years old. Since I'm a bit too old now to make him a picture of stick people next to a not so much treelike tree, I made him something a bot more complicated.
So without further ado:
whole front view:

I also painted the sides of the canvas:

I hope the photos work and it's okay to post the images and not only links....tell me of I did that wrong and I'll change it.

oOo! it reminds me of the album cover of Mika's Life In Cartoon Motion

"Oh, look at him!" "He's checking out his hair!" "Get off our bus you filthy man." *knock* "'Ello Baybee!"
