After commenting on Amy's post at Salamander Dreams we had a discussion about watercolor's. I'd never tried it before and didn't think I ever would because I can't draw or paint or anything like that. She encouraged me to try it saying it was fun & easy.
We took a family trip to Michaels Friday night and picked out paints, brushes and paper. But then it was a busy weekend and I didn't want to rush our creativity. Last night we had a surprise that the husband got home from work earlier then planned, we had supper & cleaned up in time to take out the supplies. We had a fun family watercolor session.
Ree & Daddy painted this one. I think it came out beautiful! She had so much fun and sat at the table for a good 45 minutes. She kept saying "Ree having fun!"
This one is mine. I'm not finished yet. I'd like to doodle around the various shapes like this pin on pinterest (again an idea from Amy). I'll update when I add more to it.
I also have other ideas of ways to paint. I'm encouraged by Ree's excitement too. I think we'll be doing this often!
