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.
Realising very quickly that we really should have set this up outside or at least put down more newspaper, due to the liquid watercolours splashing everywhere, however staying inside kept us out of the heat. It was a particularly hot day today.
This is their work so far. My children have said that they would like to work on it over a couple of days. I had actually thought I would possibly see my children work on half of the canvas each, but they didn’t do this, they worked together over the whole canvas.
