watercolor pencils

I love my one-on-one time with Moya. For the past few months I've really been focusing on making it a part of my weekend schedule. We've done things like go to the mall and shop, Barnes & Noble to chat and enjoy some Starbucks, watch a chick flick and knit...and our latest (my favorite so far) - drawing and painting together. Drawing and painting is where it all started for me creatively and is still my true creative love. It makes me so proud and happy to see Moya's talent and love for it as well. 

Moya recently received a nice watercolor tablet and her very first watercolor pencils. She loves to paint and draw but wanted a bit of instruction on using her new pencils. And this artist-mom was more than happy to oblige!

I pulled out my own watercolor pencils, mini watercolor block, brushes, etc. and some flower reference photos and we took over the dining room table with our mother-daughter painting!

It felt so good to draw and paint. After such a busy December I've been feeling a bit burned-out, but putting paint brush to paper was so refreshing! It was just what I needed creatively! Previous to this, I think I finished my last watercolor painting 4 or 5 years ago! That is way too long. Moya and I will definitely be painting together some more!

Here's the little flower that I painted.

And Moya's final painting.

Thanks for stopping by today, and if you're looking for a fun, creative jump start, get some paint out and play!

Great job Moya! Watercolor painting is my favorite. Your flower painting is beautiful as well Cindy! :~) Makes me want to pull out my watercolor stuff. It's been a long, long time!

Your daughter takes after her mother! Her painting is amazing! Hope she frames it!

I'm approaching 30 years old, and I still love mother/daughter time. This time you're spending with Moya is going to be time she'll treasure for the rest of her life. She's lucky to have such a mama.

BTW, love the paintings!
