on a rainy afternoon

we take out the paints.
she loves to use all of one color before she moves on to the next one. an interesting practice, which she has been showing me for a few painting sessions already. and mostly abstract, big bold strokes. i'm thinking of giving her a challenge of having to use water paints the next time...
so far she has done acrylic paints and loved it. i don't blame her, the rich pigments and full bodied paint is fun to work with.

very free form over all. mixing colours is out of question, i have tried to explain it to her, that it would totally ok and even fun to start mixing and see what is going to happen, but a big no! was the answer. no problem for me, i go with her flow of ideas and wanting to paint in her style.
