Dots and Dabs - Color Mixing Exploration

This young artist began with distinct dots of colors on her paper.
She experimented with adding additional dabs of color on top of the dots and using the brush to mix. Here she adds a dab of dark green to each color.
With layers of dabbing and mixing, the colors grow more and more similar.
Sharing color mixing discoveries with another artist.
After noting the similarity between the dots on her sweater and the dots in her painting, she added an in between color to surround the dots like the brown on her sweater.

  1. In two posts today, you've mentioned similarities between the children's clothing and their painting. I wonder if that's something they noticed, or if you brought it to their attention?
