Today was a painting day. He loves it but he gets bored of putting paint on the paper pretty quickly and just wants to put on him and me...

We did some watercolours which worked really well on wet paper. I think I appreciated it more than he did though. And the colours mixed really well which is nicer than with the ELC paints.

Both Susan Striker and the Steiner things I've read suggest giving toddlers just one colour (and then progressing onto two) so that they get to enjoy that colour and don't spend all their time choosing but the boy does like his colours and wanted blue as well as the red and yellow. So out came a different batch of paint.

Not a great photo of the watercolour as the auto focus didn't like the soft edges very much.
