Art - Watercolour Painting and a little History

We are playing with watercolour paint at the moment, trying washes, new brushes, texture.
Some watercolour paintings look effortless, that is part of their charm I guess. We know it is not so easy to create a masterpiece, it will take a lot of practice.
For now J is very happy with his first attempt...

At the library we found this lovely book that tells the story of the Mona Lisa painting, a fun way of learning some art history...

  1. a good start !! :) colourful and lovely indeed. :)
    We plan on doing art history soon too. I got some lovely books fromthe library on the life of VanGogh and Monet. Was thinking of combining music history and art history, starting with Debussy/Ravel and Monet. Will see how it goes. :)
    p.s you must have a lot of patience to try macarons!
