Watercolor by a Five Year Old

Five and a half, I'm sure he'd have me tell you. :-)
Edited to add: Sarah Sometimes commented below on the use of perspective and I need to clarify that he did this following the exact instructions of his art teacher, whose two part-video lesson he watched twice. The painting was done in two steps, first the background and then a few days later the trees, one close and one far away. His art classes in the cyber-school are FANTASTIC! (you may remember this and that and I should post more).

I just thought I'd post this to fill the space until I find the time to write a "real" blog post. :-)

You have an artist!!!

I have an artist of 5 years (almost 6) at home, my daughter, she does amazing drawings and painting and sometimes I feel she's too advanced for her age. Could you let me know where can I get access to those Cyber classes?

As Kate said above, still pretty impressive, even with instructions.

Thanks for your comment over at my place--I've responded to it over there.
