nana's christmas painting

The kid's nana requested a painting by them for Christmas- their first commission : ). One of the  things mum loves to do is walk with her partner and their dog Sadie- so that's what they drew and painted. The canvas was only $5 at Warehouse stationary, we used a black permanent marker for the outline, acyrlic paints and small brushes.

The only input I had in this was to talk them through it when they asked for help and go over the pencil lines with the marker before they painted.

That's my mum on the left in her red hat. We think it will make her smile.

  2. Your guiding hand through the process is brilliant! PINNED -- as I think their success has a LOT to do with your "facilitation." Brava!
