Making Cards

Bastian paints with watercolors to make cards of congratulations for some friends. He insisted on mashing his brush against his paper.
I tried to show him how to paint gently by modeling it.
He would have none of it. He simply repeated what I said about painting soft and continued to mash the brush against the page with his fist. There were lines scratched in both paintings where the plastic of the brush rubbed hard.
