Watercoloring the afternoon away

It had been a while since we'd worked with watercolor, and today seemed like a perfect day to get it out. We've just been using a plain old Crayola set, but Santa might have to find some liquid watercolors for Christmastime.
It really is a fun medium for experimenting. We like drawing with pen first, and then filling in our drawings. Alex worked for a solid one and a half hours!! (with a short break for snickerdoodle cookies and a glass of water). Here are some of our products from this afternoon:
Her 'August' family journal entry-- these are some of the family members that she got to see last month.

A self-portrait, titled "Alex".
