This past fall I joined a Tole Painting group at the clubhouse.
Found a balsa box at the Dollar store. Finished it just before Christmas.
The flower is supposed to be a poinsettia.
This technique of painting is quite different from what I had been doing, previously I had been doing one-stroke. I am now unlearning that skill as Tole is quite a bit lighter in brush loading and stroke.
Overall not unhappy with my first project, just impatient to develop further.
