A couple of weeks ago, Bitty brought me his watercolors and put them in my hand. This is a rare request for him, usually he isn't particularly interested in artistic endeavors.
"Do you want to paint?"
"Do you want me to open this?"
"What do you say?"
I opened up the paints for him and found a little bowl and put a small amount of water in (the less to make a mess with, my dear, haha).
He did a few strokes with his paintbrush before he got bored. I put extra water on the paints to soften them up, because I think part of the problem was he wasn't getting much color onto his brush.
A little while later, I found this at the table:
The colors he used made it clear that he was painting a picture of Gordon (one of Thomas' buddies for those not steeped in the world of Thomas & Friends). I love how he knew what he wanted to paint and brought it over to use as a model :).
