These are collaborative paintings by my 4-year old daughter and me. I start by quietly drawing a vintage, retro head (which I love doing). Next step: My daughter (who LOVES to draw) hastily snatches my sketchbook from me and draws a body and sometimes additional characters. Later, I go back and add highlights and details in acrylic paint, colored ballpoint pen, and marker. Together, they create a beautiful well as an exercise in patience (on both our parts).

Love it and want it! I might have to try a collaboration with my two artist daughters, ages 10 and 12.

Love the colab and I just love the face on this one. I was using it as a reference to draw the other night because the shading on the face makes it look so dimensional!
