My 6yo wanted to join me in this class and so we went with the bigger pieces of paper, and we both have already learned so much. Ignore the plentitude of zucchinis and zuke bread in the background. Part of why I'm enjoying this so much is a) my daughter is totally interested and is working through some learning curves as I work through my own and b) I'm forcing myself to slow down and look at things in a different way. I love that we all have our own different styles and embrace them all. An image on the computer screen for some reason is more straight forward for me... I can disassociate from the image - the feet with their upturned toes in the back - the different colors in the beak, the beautiful green background - I find it difficult to find the right colors yet, but it is good to sit with an image for a while and try to tease it apart.
