I was a lot of fun while it lasted, then he got bored.  We took a picture of our masterpiece later that evening, although the colors look pretty faded due to the light outside.  Without a doubt, I will keep and treasure this and many of his own drawings forever.

Emma joined us for some “If You’re Happy And You Know It” serenades, courtesy of her brother.  She is starting to enjoy looking at him play and she loves it even more when he talks to her using a very squeaky voice or making silly faces (ahem… he might have learned that from me).  Needless to say, my heart totally melts.

Hope you’re having a good weekend! xx

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Sammy:  There is a very wild spirit hiding behind that cute face.

Emma: Stroller naps in the park and sweet chubby cheeks.

✚ Paper: I got this beautiful Sennelier 100% cotton watercolor block in Paris last year; the Sennelier art shop it’s dreamy, I would have stayed in there for hours.  You can also find it here or here.

✚ Color: My sister Iulia surprised me with this new Van Gogh watercolor set the other day.  I can honeslty say that I love it; the colors are luminous, intense and they bled together beautifully. You can find the set here, here or a larger one here.

✚ Brush: I used a size 6, pointed round synthetic fiber brush that comes with the pan and a 10/0 Daler Rowney liner for details.

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Sammy:  Having a lot of fun with his daddy in the park last weekend.  I love watching them play and do things together.

Emma: Trying to discover the world around her little by little. She loves the curtains in our bedroom, she would stare at them for minutes and minutes.
