very sweet! Great drawing. Lovin' the rainbow!
Hey, have you ever tried a wax resist technique? So FUN for kids this age!
All you do is color the fun parts/interest parts you love in a picture(copy it on cardstock or draw one on watercolor paper)with crayon–make it really thick and bright, then go over all the other spots with watercolor. The paint only will adhere to the unwaxed areas. It is so fun, because their work turns out so "perfect" and the little ones are thrilled with the results.
Try the PRANG brand of watercolor–very high pigments (Walmart used to carry them, I would suppose they still do, if not I have seen that brand at Hobby Lobby)! I used them to make bulletin boards when I taught lower el.
Anyway, your sweet ones art peaked my interest=) Keep up the great work, have a =D day!!!
