Kissing Pears: Art Lesson no. 4

Kissing Pears in Gouache
This is my gouache painting on bristol board, 9 x 12 inches

Today Annie and I spent the afternoon learning about blind contour drawing. 

 First we stopped by for a visit at my friend Diahn's blog: Art by Diahn to see what a blind contour drawing was.  Annie's eyes flew wide open anticipating this lesson would be challenging.  I told her our brains were going to work very hard with our drawing hand and arm!

For a look at what Annie worked on today go visit her at Annie's Adventures with Nina.

I love contour drawing and enjoyed sharing the concept with Annie.  And what fun we had bringing out the gouache for us to add color to our drawings!

    Marta,
    I love this series of art lessons with Annie. What a cutie and very lucky little girl. You give me many ideas for my painting sessions with just 3 year old Sydney who is obsessed with making things.

    Marta, those pears look lovely. This is so much fun seeing how you teach art to Annie. I might apply this idea to my Iris, who is 2.5 years old now.

  12. Marta, it's interesting how you coloured the pears, using a small palette.
