Baby Sea Turtle – Acrylic on canvas board.
I’ve seen a local event at one of the shops called a ‘Paint and Drink’ or something along those lines, and for a while I’ve considered taking my wife out for one. In the end I decided why couldn’t I just sit at home with her and do the same thing! I have all of the equipment and supplies we could ever need so it only makes sense to throw some music and wine into the mix.
It was fun to teach her some techniques for painting and get her to actually make something with me that doesn’t involve digging around in the yard! She did most of the initial drawing work and then handed the brush off when she felt the need to take a break (she is a self-professed perfectionist) and I would dig in with carving the painting out and trying my best to explain what I was doing at the same time. Apparently I did a good enough job because she’s looking forward to the next one!
