Painting outdoors

Day 25 of #65daysofsummer

If you saw my post earlier in the year you’ll remember me finding some watercolour paints and watercolour pencils that I vowed to get using.

Today the children and I went out into the garden to use them for the first time. I have no skill whatsoever but really enjoy drawing and painting. It was great fun letting the children loose with the pencils. They thought the idea of dipping them in water was great and loved the way they can be used in different ways to create different effects.

As you can see my picture passes for a child’s attempt (no smart comments about which one is which please! 😜) but I really don’t care. It was a great way to spend an hour together.
