"Learning Scissor Skills"

"Learning Scissor Skills", oil on 8x10 canvas
To quote his teacher: "he is almost three years old. In this picture he is practicing his scissor skills. This was one of the first times he tried the scissors. That practice paid off as he now often goes home with an envelope of cut up paper bits to show his parents and older siblings. Using the scissors is still one of his favourite activities.  He also loves being snack helper and going on trips to the park."
I found this quite a challenge, but I must admit I did enjoy painting it, children's faces are hard to paint the colours are extremely delicate, and I think the painting captures the moment!
