While the eldest is at school, my 3-year old daughter chooses the subject, I do a sketch, and my daughter paints (or colors) it.
This week features a baby toy so colorful even the older kids can’t stop playing with the thing. It’s a soft snail that has a bunch of feel-the-different textures, objects, mirror and such that all roll into a ball to make the mama snail’s back.
and my daughter’s coloring.
Big bro wanted one too after school. Here’s the pose he requested. You can tell I had a bit more time to work on his. Baby was napping and not milling around me, crying that she wanted to hold my drawing subject!
And here’s his coloring. Notice that he tested his pencils at the top and provided a record at the side of the colors he used, a la Mama Ella.
I really like the look of colored pencil on dark paper. It really makes the colors glow. Ha! It’s a glow worm!
