When I get out the paints for my little girl I remind myself this is her time. It’s not about creating a masterpiece it’s about learning and discovering. In no way should I put my ideas upon her. 5 minutes in and I’m thinking put that there, use this colour, don’t ruin it !!! . I step away from the table and I try not to look. The outcome is not good – her clothes are messy – the chair and table are covered and a bath is required NOW …. but she is happy. My goal is achieved. I have to confess however the picture below was not created by this method. I helped perhaps a little too much. But hey, I kind of like the result ……a joint effort !
