Toby & the Parrots
I haven't forgotten about Jaran and his amazing art but because he used oil pastels for his little dog Toby and H2o color applique for the parrots, I didn't think to post them with my other grand kid's tempera washes. Sorry Jaran! He did these two super pictures when he was only 6 and 7 years old, Toby in oil pastel being the first. During these art lessons with me, he too learned the first rule of good design: how to "divvy" up the paper into positive and negative shapes, and then a little about the use of color. His family, along with everyone else, loves these paintings and have framed and hung them in the dining room.
