I drew some fun pictures on a poster board for my kids to paint this afternoon. They both asked for jungle type pictures. Alexis wanted some monkeys in a jungle of trees and Ben wanted some elephants. Ben was basically done painting by the time I got out my camera, flash, and umbrella set. I wanted another try at lighting with my new Speedlight. Alexis was determined to paint until the picture was completely finished, but Ben doesn’t have that kind of patience yet.
I love these few here with her expression while she paints. She really enjoys this activity and is happy and content the rest of the day anytime I let her paint.
My kids paint in shirts they get from sporting classes they take from time to time and don’t usually wear pants. This way I won’t worry about their clothes or photographing them naked. I didn’t mind when they were younger. Alexis would usually be in just a diaper and covered from head to tos in paint, mainly because she saw more fun in painting herself than the paper.
Alexis added the bananas all on her own without me drawing them in for her. The sky is a reddish pink because she is painting the jungle at sunset and adding her own setting sun in as well.
Sasha was here watching and this is the famous beagle head tilt. Sometimes if you make a new and interesting sound they will usually tilt their heads at you as if they are trying to figure out the new sound they hear.
I thought I would get a couple practice shots of her with the flash as well. This was the one I liked best out of all of them. I did apply a texture to it for fun.
