Children's art

A highlight of the last month was drawing with my four-year-old cousin. I met Braden for the first time at an extended family gathering and we clicked. He expressed an interest in drawing with me and I was surprised by his precise description of colour. He asked for a green that had a bit of grey in it and for a blue that had a bit of purple in it (not shown in this picture of a dinosaur). With such an early understanding of colour he could be the next Ellsworth Kelly, if it isn't hammered out of him.

Children draw the most genuinely and creatively than three artsy adults combined. :)
