Painting with the Kids Again (Part Two)

The kids got working on their paintings the other day:

(Remember: click on the pictures below to see a slightly larger version)

Finnegan is painting a couple dinosaurs.

Keira, I thought, was painting a unicorn ballerina on the stand with a dragonfly on her nose, but it seems to have turned into a cheetah…?

It was good to see them taking a bit more time on things…

Keira is done hers.

Finnegan has decided his needs a bit more work. He worked on it a bit more yesterday and plans to do so again today…

In the meantime, while Finnegan was working on his some more yesterday, Keira did some more painting on paper. I have found that giving them all available colours they tend to mix them all together and things gets a little… “muddied”…? So yesterday I gave Keria only two colours (of her choice) and an “assignment” to pick one shape, paint one colour inside the shape and another colour outside the shape. The result was one of the best paintings she has done yet!!

We are painting fools, we are…

  1. Wow I can't believe that I children like in the photo could make a very nice abstract painting that so fascistic.
