This bright and busy design on a birdhouse is a great way to practice your brushstrokes and have something to show for all of your hard work.
I took the opportunity to vary the shape, size and color of the different strokes to find out which ones I like best.
This project took me about 3 days start to finish but the time it would require for you may vary depending on how much of it you want to do at a time.
There were only 2 sides of this birdhouse that weren't made up of slats so I painted one red and the other blue and then added a few flowers to them.
You can see here how the wheelchair ramp inspired my design.
