He can look at the below pastel portrait painting (using my new supplies) and lovingly say:
"Why Mummy, this is the most beautiful painting of me I have ever seen. It is mag-ni-fi-cent. It even almost, kinda, in-a-way-looks-like-me except my face is not flat!"
It's good to try new things and new styles of painting, right? I must confess that although this isn't exactly a masterpiece (I would classify it as flop), I do quite like the painterly style (or maybe it was just that I liked putting lots of purple pastel in his hair).
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I've been up to,
(Seriously now, when am I *ever* going to get better? Surely it will happen one day!) Kate
PS: Haven't forgotten my wrecked Mr Chuckles painting, it's just it is hard to feel inspired to finish it when I know deep down that I've wrecked it...
PPS: What is with the two posts in one day?! I am on a pastel roll, baby! I can't even blame it on the fumes.
