Maia and our friend Nikhil had a chance to reapply the spray paint color to the canvas walls the other day.
Here they are spraying in the same spot. I could say they were color mixing, but I think I may have overheard the words “kill the yellow.” Ugh. But it was fun to see how they experimented and tried different ways of applying the spray paint.
They sprayed really close to the canvas (even touching it with the nozzles) as well as getting farther away for more of a splatter effect. So far the spray paint was no longer reaching the canvas, in fact, but then they moved closer again….
There was also some more drawing with sharpies.
Daphne drew quite a bit, too, from my arms. I’m really loving these canvas panels! I’m wondering how you could use these yourselves this summer, but without rigging up the poles that we have. The canvas is just painters’ drop cloths we bought at Home Depot. You could perhaps tie or drape one over a fence or nail it to the side of a house. Or spread it out on the ground. Or use it to make a teepee and then paint and draw on the teepee all summer. Or? Any other ideas? I think it has so much potential for outdoor art! And really, rigging up a couple of poles on the edge of a yard wouldn’t be too hard.
