My daughter and her wild color choices. I'm so proud.
Watching my kids draw and paint is always an enjoyable and surprising activity. Kids tend to be bold with color choices and mark-making, they have a sense of what they want to create but aren't focused on making it "right". Most of the time, as long as you pull away the paper before everything turns to "mud" you get some great little abstract pieces!
Ari and I were drawing on the driveway yesterday (in spite of the incredible heat and humidity here in GA!) and I just loved her colorful depiction of Me that she colored. In fact I think it's the same pallette of fuscias, orange, deep blue and a touch of light green that I used the other night in my figure drawing!
