So after my first attempt at drawing (see Flamingo post) I took a trip to Michaels Arts & Crafts store to pick up real art supplies. No more crayons for me. I bought a sketch pad, oil pastels, water color, an assortment of brushes, and a pad for water colors. It turns out, my 6 year old daughter Olivia is quite the talent as well. Here is her portrait of me. A water color masterpiece!!!
At Olivia’s request for a peacock, here’s my second attempt at art. This time I used oil pastels instead of crayons. Slightly infantile but still … I’m pleased. 🙂
I love my new hobby. Another activity I can enjoy with my daughter while spending quality time with her! I’ll try my hand at water color next.
