Me & my 3 year old son did wet on wet water coloring together for some art therapy! In Waldorf philosophy of alternative education, wet on wet coloring is very popular. This is a free hand style we did together. It is Spring season right now & we are reading about nature & birds these days, so my son chose to paint a duck.
Here are some bird related books I am reading to my 3 year old these days because it’s spring time and my boy has been listening to koyal and other birds these days during our nature walks. We also made a nest using twigs & weaved them into pipe cleaner few days back.
Do you have any favorite kids books related to birds? I would love to know, do share in the comments below.
Since we are reading about birds these days, my son wanted to paint a duck. So we took this page as reference and did our wet on wet painting.
Here is our humble setup.
Products Used –
The brand of water color paper we used isnt showing up online, so I am linking up a similar water color paper of another brand for your reference.
This is how we started our work on the floor.
Our work midway. Left one is my 3 year old son’s work & right one is mine. It was done free hand on wet paper. I am actually happy the way my son’s artwork turned out to be. It is difficult for a child to do free hand painting. Of course I was guiding him verbally how & what to make.
After the painting was dry, I outlined both the paintings using black gel pen. This is our final outcome & I am very happy about it!
