There is something magical about watercolor pencils. When my children use them they are anticipating the final step the entire time -- the step when their drawing comes to life with a little bit of water. I thought an ocean scene would be perfect for this magical art experience.

How We Did It

Watercolor Ocean Scene

We have been reading a lot of ocean books lately, so this painting was very exciting for my five-year old to work on. She brought out a few of her books to use as a reference while drawing.

She began to draw the ocean and all that she imagined to be in it. She loves to use watercolor pencils because they make her feel so grown up!

Her drawing came out beautifully, but there was much more to come.

As she started to paint over her drawing with water, her eyes lit up and the picture really became a beautiful ocean in her sweet eyes.

It's amazing how a few simple materials and a sweet child's imagination can make such a beautiful piece of art work. This is one I'll be saving for sure!
