three days ago, ari cleaned our watercolor pallete, dropped a few drops of colors on it and gave it to aina. she already has her own brush and water cup on her “work table” at all times. usually, she uses the brush to play around with water. this time, she’s allowed to play with colors and mix them together.
since then, she’s been addicted to do watercolors. she paints everyday. her first painting consists of just circles, as you can see it on the picture above and during the making below:
it is now hanging proudly on our fridge.
lately, though, she has learned not to put too much water on the paper (because it soaked the paper and the colors transferred on to her table), not to push too hard on the paper (because it will rip the paper apart), and how to draw things other than circles… for example, lines, a letter T, weird rectangles, and — erm — furballs.
