Painting in the Garden

After dropping our lovely friends at the station, I came home with just the youngest son.  The sun had finally come out so I suggested we paint outside in the garden.  We enthusiastically carried out a bench for resting on and set to work.  Inspired by the beautiful sunshine, flowers, trees and blue sky, my son painted a street of houses at night.  Interesting.  I tried to be a bit more upbeat and get the feel of the light filtering into the garden and the pond.  They were painted quickly as the attention span of a six year old is not huge.  But I am pleased with the reflective quality of the first one.  And I felt I remembered how to enjoy using the paint.  More sunshine please.
