Usually when painters come to the easel, they just start to paint from the jars that are already there, and then ask for additional colors as needed. C. is particular about having a whole rainbow of colors before she starts painting, so I surprised her by having her easel all set and ready to go when she arrived.
On her first few preschool paintings, she made a line of rainbow dots, and then said, "I'm done!" She started with her line of dots today, as you can see in the beginning in the bottom left photo. Then she left for music, but came back to add more shapes and colors. I love the way many different mark-making techniques are represented here. It is a painting to be proud of, Miss C!
