I get to keep my little two year old grandson each week for the day. He has watched as his older “bubby” goes into my art room to create many times. This week, as we got in the house and started putting his bag down, he runs to the steps and says he wants to go paint.
LOL!! so, we go in the room, where he knows his chair is, and after he is all settled into his chair, up on his knees to be sure to see everything on the table, we get the water and brushes and the watercolors out. Then, he is ready to go… He is loving anything Micky Mouse these days, so of course he wants me to draw Micky Mouse so he can paint. The good news is, he doesn`t care what he looks like just so he is a circle two big circles for the ears!! he paints for a little while then is ready to go downstairs to watch Micky on TV.. I wish I had a dollar for how many times he says, “Micky Mouse” each day!!
As I was working on a new lesson this week from Let`s Face It, with Robin Laws. She gets an inspiration piece to do her painting with. So, I found this awesome girl, painted to look like an angel, without wings, I guess….. She plays with hers in photoshop, but I just collaged my pieces together. Added some butterfly wings, and a gold crown and get them all situated onto the painted background, I have fixed..
I drew he some outstretched arms and hands to hold the bird. Then started painting and making her into my vision. I made a pink dress with a sash and bow, and situated her crown on her head, and painted it more gold. I even added a little skinny tree, with muted leaves. I used some stencils and more layers then ready to finish her off..
It was a fun lesson, and it makes me feel good to have completed it!!
