A rainy day here at home, spent creating portraits in the style of Mary Cassatt. Paints first, then details added in pastels.
A wonderful experience, enjoyed by both children! "Can we do it again tomorrow Mamma?" summed it up. :)
I helped the children with their outlines by 'modeling' holding Will for them.... and helping Elijah a bit with the sketching of his and Will's bodies. The background paint-work and pastels were done independently by the children- I'm really proud of their efforts! A bit disappointed though that Eiljah asked Saraya to add eyelashes to his painting- and she did. :( Not entirely his work now, but oh well!
