Had to borrow the kid across the street--mine are getting too old for drawing on walls! The funny thing is, I told him he could draw, but he drew so lightly, I had to draw the artwork myself (beautiful, isn't it?) When my kids drew on the walls, they weren't so timid!

Forgot to add--bought a $2 piece of broken drywall from Lowes, a short piece of floorboard and some wallpaper. Taped the wallpaper on--tried to get it as tight as possible.

very cute Wendy! I can't believe that after 3 boys I only had this happen once and the blue that was used matched the wall paper so well that it was hardly noticeable. I actually wouldn't have noticed had he not shown his "artwork"

Uh oh... Someone's in trouble. Wish the focus was a tad sharper on the boy.

The image meets the subject matter dead on. A sound demonstration of the creative process in meeting the challenge in a very unusual way. A couple of minor detail problems as the image appears to be less than sharp. A good solid entry into the challenge.

I love the colour palette in this composition: his hair tones, the wall, the colour choices of wall scribbles...they all blend. Personally I would have cropped tighter off the bottom.

Hope that's not really your wall!! he looks like he had fun though. The eyes and hair could be sharper though.
