Hero's Self Portrait

The Art room at Hero's school has been open at lunchtime and Hero as been really enjoying it!

She brought home this self portrait yesterday and there are so many things i love about it.
  • Her signature
  • The ponytail sticking out the back
  • The eyelashes
  • The angular nose and the tiny nostril
  • The fact that she coloured in the wrong parts of her eyes
She still has a touch of the beautiful naive children's perspective, but is getting more conscious of making things look correct. This is a nice combination. Before long she will get self conscious  of how she draws.

My Dad would have loved to see the kids drawings, and they could have learnt a lot from him.
