The Photo Gallery: Colour

The Photo Gallery: Week 95
Colour


This picture instantly sprang to mind when I saw the theme for this week's Gallery. It was my daughter's first painting attempt and it was incredibly colourful! Her nappy is a bum genius artist edition (although it took a good few months to recover from this)!

Messy play is such good fun. All three of us were completely covered in paint by the end. After a joint bath, the water was utterly brown!

  3. I used to do this a lot with my daughter right up the age of about 7. We called it paying pooh tracks as sometimes she would step in plates of paint and walk down rolled out lining paper. I got a 5foot length framed and it's my favourite picture in my house. They make lovely memories.

    1. We have a 4ft sheet of wallpaper covered in all of our foot and hand-prints. We'be yet to put it on the wall though!

  4. Yeah, what is it with colours? Mix 2 and you get another nice colour. Mix 3 or more and you invariably get brown?
    Looks like she was having a lot of fun there :)

    1. Hadn't thought of that before. Any more than 2 colours and you're pretty much guaranteed brown. Lovely!

  5. That's brilliant! Made me laugh instantly. Good luck with the clearing up. This is the reason we do crafts INFREQUENTLY in my house, even though I'm an arty soul!!!

    1. Thank you. It is rather beautiful. It's rolled up ready to go on the wall when we have some space.
