Day 3 #blogflash2012 - Colour

Isn't that a happy picture?!
Today, I thought I'd share a piece of art from my daughter. She created this masterpiece on my husband's IPad. I think it's brilliant. The big reason is because it uses lots of colour. If you have kids or work with pre-schoolers, you know they tend to pick one colour and do the entire picture in that colour. Or, they will mix many colours together making the result monochromatic brown. This was one of the first real pieces I've seen my daughter do that uses different colours.

I do cross-stitch. In someways, it's like the embroidery version of colouring. Fill in this area in this colour. Okay! Now use this shade. Now draw in the lines... I have always loved to colour, outlining in a darker shade and then filling in. I think it's something my daughter and I can enjoy together.
