Art lessons are back up and going! My 8 year old friend wanted to paint today (lately we’ve been drawing, a -great!- skill to always go back to) and I was excited about this simple still life. It’s the same Christmas berries as from the other day, but I thought all the gaps between the stems and actual berries and shadow colors would be a fun challenge for her. She did well! She painted really small so I had to go quick to keep up : ), but I really enjoy painting these berries. And teaching today was just the push I needed to get a painting done today.
