These are going to be framed in pride of place in our home near our creative area. This art was very much inspired by Van Gogh and not an attempt to copy his picture in any way, thus leaving the focus on developing artistic skills with an open-ended result, not aiming for a finished carbon-copy.
We will definitely be returning to this easy-peasy finger printing method with lots of other bright colours very soon. I feel a huge, collaborative wall art project coming on!
