Reba & Mommy Date

Tonight was Reba's turn for the canvas paint party.  She had picked the snowman for her project.
We were originally scheduled to go tomorrow night, but there were not enough people signed up, so we moved to night.  We started with dinner, again, her choice and she chose Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Reba had the same instructor as Dallas, but tonight she decided not to have the design pre-drawn on the canvas...there would be too many "corners" to try and paint around for the blue background.

After Reba painted the entire canvas blue, she added some white detail to show the blowing snow.  After we used the blow dryer to dry the background, the instructed traced the snowman and tree for Reba.

Reba then free handed the remaining parts (the tree trunk, the snow on the tree, the ornaments, the snowman's arms, scarf, and face, etc).
The instructed "finished" the painting by adding the black outlines, before we dried it one more time with the hair dryer and headed home!
Until next time...
