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.
