A few art pieces by Ammu 🙂
This one is inspired by the falling leaves in Autumn. Or is it Winter in February? Whatever! 🙂
One morning while waiting for the school van, I spotted a bird on the tree opposite to the gate and was showing it to her. The tree was almost bare and Ammu was excited to see the leaves shedding !! She identified the season as Autumn.. and exclaimed that we could make a painting/drawing of that scene..
Though I forgot about it, she came up with this one, and surprised me when I came back from work 🙂 I loved that she has used 2 different colours on the leaves. And, see the detailing on the girl’s dress? And, the caption! Cute na 😛
I was quite impressed when she showed me this one! So very different from her usual ones 🙂 She then told me that she started out with something else in her mind but ended up with this 🙂 I was glad that she didn’t give up and came up something even if it was not the thing that she’d imagined..
Couple of days ago she wanted to do a painting. A scenery having a house, bushes, flowers and clouds.She wanted me to help her and show her how to go about it. But she is very impatient and cannot wait to get going. And she declared that she didnt like what I was doing! Basically, I had made a rough sketch of the house and tree and was showing how to colour the sky first, when she said this. And then, she proceeded to make her own drawing.
Since I had already started off, I thought of completing it.. with a slight hope that she’ll observe what I was doing 🙂 It felt good.. doing a water colour painting after what seems like ages!! Come to think of it, I havent done one after my school days! Anyhow, I liked the end result and Ammu, after a while said that she liked it too 🙂 The sun is red in colour courtsey Ammu!
As for her own attempts, she started off with the blue sky but got no further, and those pieces landed in the dustbin. Btw.. this happens not only with art and craft but with her notebooks and diaries too. She’ll promptly tear off pages when she feels it is not neat or upto her expectation 😦 She, at times, expects instant perfection and doesnt get the fact that it takes patience and a lot of attempts to get good at painting or any other creative task for that matter.I keep reminding her that she can paint if she enjoys doing it and need not be worried about doing it perfectly. I’m sure she’ll learn that slowly and in her own way. I need to be patient till then 🙂
