My daughter's first oils

Now I'm back. After three years of geofumadas, I decided to take a break that I already needed. I have had time to do a couple of trips not necessarily work, see the quiet world, and do some empirical art that relaxes.

I went back to painting, but this time not in oil, I want to play with acrylic and texture paste. So that my children do not destroy my desire, I bought them some cambas, a miniature easel, oils and turpentine so that they will be happy with the art they already bring.

Here I show you the results of the almost eight years of my daughter, who had hardly dared with watercolors and tempers.


His first strokes. Your first encounter with mixing two edges in fresh and not knowing what to do.


Here making their mixtures with the spatula. It took a while for him to get the colors out of the tube without becoming enchanted.


There it goes again, from top to bottom, with a flat 12 brush. Synthetic bristles but running as if it were camel hair.


Finally he ended up with his legs painted and the smell of turpentine left a growl in his chest from his asthma. But it is a love. I gave him a glass of milk to reduce the toxicity and the next day I was ready.

He sat down to make a few doodles, without deciding to imitate my crazy cubist style or his childish figures.

100_1919With the first one he learned several concepts that I was not taught at the first time: to pass the priming layer with turpentine to avoid dry quarters, to control the edges between flat tones, not to leave white spaces, not to use the brush very dry and never put the color in the direct tone that comes in the tube. And while my son complained because Holland did not do anything in the end ... he dared the second.

We'll see how long the supplies I've left last.

Now we will go with my son, who very young had tried with oil on canvas without primer.

Undoubtedly it is not his original style, but to see my Rats of madness with these mosaics you already know the skill. More to be good with me than with herself, but that way she will develop her own style.

What satisfaction has caused me !!!

  1. It's good that you dedicate that time and teach him something that can be as simple as "using creativity through some means." I wish all the children had some potatoes that teach them to risk these "easy" things and dedicate that time to them that at the end of the years is so valuable ...
    A kiss and I'm glad you're back and rested!
