Chinese Brush Painting
I finally brought out the paints, paper, and brushes. I set up the table for my men and we finished up the unit on China we have been on forever. We haven't moved on because I just kept putting this project off. The guide said to have them paint pictograms with brushes but I thought we could make it a little more artistic. I am in love with this way of painting now. It is so gentle and the painting evolve with very little effort on your part. Remy even got it down at the last moments and painted a very good fish, his best painting ever!
We used this book:
The Chinese Brush Painting Handbook
This is Remy's paper. I love his fish!
Elijah's web and branch looks as good as daddy's web and branch. Elijah spent most of his time on that bird.
I had so much fun! :) This one is MINE!
And now the Daddy Person's art...
Remy did have a bit of a melt down with painting again. He seems to have better control with pens and pencils and he gets the results he desires with those tools. He went away and had a good cry and then he came back and made that fish. He was so proud and I think it clicked for him. Yay!
