So, Lily and I have been reading the series Fablehaven. One of the characters Lena draws intricate mythical scenes for the children to paint. Lily asked me to draw things for her to color. I don’t draw enough to just make something up. I have to copy. There are amazing sites out there that show you how to draw almost anything you want.
Here are a couple of examples of my “coloring pages.” As you can see, my flowers need work. (I still draw them as I did from elementary school. LOL) perhaps I need to find a site on how to draw flowers. This stag is from DragoArt. The fairy is from WikiHow. The trees are from childhood. LOL
While I would prefer Lily to draw her own, I think it’s good for her to see me draw. I make a lot of mistakes and the eraser is my friend. She’s such a perfectionist that I hope by showing her mistakes are okay and often easy to rectify, she will ease those impossible standards.
The fairy colored in by Lily. I’m not sure why, but when I uploaded this file, it turned sideways. I don’t have any way to adjust it.
The stag drawing colored in. Other than the stag, the “scene” is of my creation.
Lily insisted I sign my artwork. As the fairy isn’t really mine, I didn’t feel right about signing, but I did it to appease her. 🙂
That’s when you know your fairy is real. She is probably thinking (about humans) that we get it all wrong; that she is right where she’s supposed to be.
You are right. Perhaps she was talking to me, Stephen. 🙂
