Had another success in the hospital this morning teaching some
watercolour techniques to a 10 year old. She had drawn a picture in
pencil then proceeded to paint over the drawing, virtually drawing
with a paint brush. My student who was working with me in the
hospital and is also an art major was with the child too. I showed
the child how to flood the sky area of her picture with water then
float on the blue. We were looking at the children's book "Guess How
Much I Love You" as well. This book has some lovely line and wash
illustrations. Later when I came back into her room the girl was
working on a direct observation drawing of the view from the window.
(Not very inspiring bricks and roofline). However she was drawing
with a fineline ink pen then painted with a wash. my student was
verbally encouraging by discussing various observational details
which were being incorporated into the drawing. The picture was
about 10" square, on white card.. We mounted the picture and the
child was delighted. Her response was" I wish I didn't have to come
to hospital because I broke my wrist, but I am glad I came because I
have had a good time this morning."
