new work from the little ones…

January 13, 2009

I meant to post these lovely paintings yesterday.  Executed in watercolor pencil, the effect is quite similiar to the flowing colors and design on the scarf they gave me.

Does anyone remember the coloring books, where all you had to do was run a wet brush over the lines, and they magically turned into paint?  This technique so brings me back to those days.   My Granny J, would have a stash of these books for anytime we came to visit…the girls tell me they’re still in existence.  I might have to get my hands on one for a good sick day.

    A-dorable! I love all the pretty colors.

    And I remember those ‘magic paint’ (or whatever they’re called) books. I remember my sister and I used Q-tips for ‘paintbrushes’ and little dixie cups filled with water for ‘paint’. ahhh the good ol’ days.
