This week Immy has been rediscovering her watercolour paints which had not made an appearance for a little while now. There have been many, many paintings of figures, exploring with patches of colour, experimenting with how the water impacts the colour saturation, and even applying the paint with her fingertip (and *ahem* yes, we quite often wear a pink dancing tutu whilst painting! LOL). After allowing her to work with her paper flat on the table for a setting, I used a recycled length of box cardboard to fashion a simple tabletop easel and this actually appeared to encourage her to work for longer periods of time on each artwork. If you have not tried watercolour paints with your child before, this post shares how I introduced the process for using watercolours with Immy.
