Art Night in Color

Before Edmund’s arrival on Thursday, we had regular Art Night on Wednesday. Using Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun by Carla Sonheim, we explored color. First, we watered down red, blue and yellow watercolor. Then we made swipes with the colors. And then we had to find an animal in the swipes and bring it out with our pens and charcoal.

Eleanor found a person instead of an animal in her first colors.

Joey’s rabbit. (He was a much more cooperative “student” this week.)

I’m sensing a rabbit and snake theme here.

Yep. A whole litter of rabbits.

Her first was this dragon who is still undergoing his transformation.

I’m not sure what this is, but I’m pretty sure it’s not a rabbit.

Fun times, as always.
