Artist of the Week: Ink
I took this picture of Max at his behest. A couple of weeks ago he was creating various structures with his favorite building material, dominoes, and wanted me to take pictures of what he had made. I'm more than happy to comply since it results in him being happy to pick up the dominoes and put them away when he is done. Also it's far less upsetting for Max when the inevitable wagging dog ambles by and knocks it all over. Seriously one of these days I should get little Godzilla costumes for the dogs and film the destruction. Add in a little bad dubbing and instant hilarity.
Any hoodle, enough about the dominoes.
The students had to draw various animals using black ink and brush. It is a bit like watercolor which is all about managing how wet the brush is. I like the monkey Max made, it's a cheerful little fellow like it's creator. Max was very pleased with his creation and promptly presented it to me when he got home. An improvement over the normal "Oh I forgot about it for a week in my backpack."
