Creative Saturdays – Painting without a Brush
When I attended my Experimental Watercolour Course we were encouraged (well actually told) to paint only with found materials. Someone brought in a child’s bubble blower; others brought kitchen utensils, straws, strainers; someone had made an unusual homemade items with strings and washers.
Today I thought I would experiment with vegetables. I chose a cherry tomato, carrots and kale.
jThen I started to paint my picture. I mixed some paint on the pallett. Then painted my turtle.
Here are the vegetables after being in the paint.
I found I could use the carrot to draw with. The tomato made a good head, and legs. Both the carrot and the tomato I used to stamp Tadeo’s back. The kale was useful for the background leaves.
I hope you enjoyed today’s experiment and will try it with your kids and grandkids.
Don’t forget to send me your child’s pictures. Send them to Janis Cox and I will put them up in the Children’s Gallery.
Please check out more about my book Tadeo Turtle on Tadeo’s Page. You will find more activities at the back of my book. And a 24-page curriculum is available if you ask.

I wanted to invite you to the Friday Flash Blog Party, the best linky in town! I hope you’ll join us and link up. Who knows. You may just get highlighted!
The party goes on through Monday.
