My geofumadas

My daughter's first oils

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

I painted again, but this time not in oil, I want to play with acrylic and texture paste. So that my children don't destroy my desire, I bought them some cambas, a miniature easel, oils and turpentine so that they can indulge in 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. His first encounter with mixing two fresh edges and not knowing what to do.


Here making his mixes with the spatula. It took a while for him to get the colors out of the tube without getting stuck.


There he goes again, top to bottom, with a flat 12 brush. Synthetic bristles but working like camel hair.


He finally ended up with his legs painted over and the smell of turpentine left him a groan in his chest from his asthma. But it is a love. I gave her a glass of milk to reduce the toxicity and the next day there she was ready.

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

And while my son complained because Holland did not do anything in the final… he dared to 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 those mosaics you already know the trick. More to look good to me than to herself, but in this way she will develop her own style.

What satisfaction has caused me !!!

  1. It's good that you dedicate that time to him and teach him something that can be as simple as "use creativity through some medium". I wish all children had some parents who teach them to take risks in 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!
