As my brother made an H with the carrots I got an inspiration to make a face with my food. And I found a place for every piece! I am very happy with my work.
Grade 2 drawing from life (with primary school art teacher Danielle Searles).
There must have been talk of tone and shadow here.
These are monotypes, coloured with my help on the computer. Hugo did the monotypes when he was four years old. I still love them.
I love the pattern , strength of line and the signature style of these drawings. (I love it that kids’ individual drawing style emerges at so young an age.)
This raw, bold energy and the chunky shapes would look great as etchings. Perhaps some other kind of printing that we can do at home would be possible. Or I could simply buy some etching plates and let him go for it…
