painting anyone

Is anyone else a crafter of many choices? I like to knit, quilt, paint etc. Last night my 9 year old niece and I painted some roofing slates.
Here are the results.............
Emily's picture that she was painting from.




and her slate so far..... I see a budding artist!




my picture but as you can see I used creative liberty and I stink at baskets LOL



I will try and work a little more on the basket so it isnt so one dimentional.I do love the flowers though. they were fun. Can you tell? I put more of them in the basket and didnt show the handle. That is what is great about paint. You don't like something, you paint over it.

I have to admit my flowers look more like lilacs than hydrangea. I think I used a brush that is too small. the petals should be larger and rounder. but the overall effect I think is ok.
I also need to invest in some stencils for lettering. But it has a rustic feel to it and will be a gift once I tweak some things.

    1. thanks. I always liked to draw and paint but never persued that creative path except to dabble here and there. I find it relaxing just as quilting is for me.
