Toveli pulled out the little tubes of oil paints we got at our neighbour’s garage sale in June. She’s been curious about using them, and finally pulled them out a couple days ago and did her thing. She hasn’t got the feel for globbing it on, giving texture to and depth to the paint, but I’m sure she’ll get it. She did the sky picture on a textured paper and blended it like watercolours. But the bird picture she started to leave some thickness to the sun.
It will be interesting to watch her ability improve. We can talk and tell all we want, but she learns best from experiencing it herself. Like most of us.
