'Ship on the high seas' watercolour

I was asked to make a more manly card suitable for a daddy. After a lot of thought I decided dads are like ships, they give us guidance, strength and direction and so designed a traditional ship with blue and red sails on top of a deep ocean of blue and green. The card is painted using watercolour paints on textured watercolour card.

Relief Prints

I made a relief print and used it to make three different effects

I experimented with different types of cards and papers

with a mix of acrylics and watercolours
