Collaborative art work- painting on canvas

You may remember a previous post I wrote in 2016 of my two children doing some outdoor canvas art. A couple of days ago, they asked If I could use white paint to paint over that art work so they could create some new art together. I managed to do two coats of white paint, but you can still vaguely see the previous picture, it probably needed another coat of paint to completely cover it over. My children were just to excited to wait any longer and were so keen to paint this afternoon.

Interestingly, in this picture, my daughter has taken a break from painting and her brother has taken over. At times they worked side-by-side, or just one at a time. I didn’t need to be involved at all..they worked it all out themselves.
