Just in case anybody thinks the last post was cheating, I’ve written out one conversation in full 🙂
Mrs Andrews watched Charlotte mixing the paint. She daintily swirled her brush first in one colour, then in another until, happy with the shade she had created, she started dabbing it on the paper.
“Charlotte, are you sure it should be that colour?”
“Yes, Mrs Andrews, You showed us last week how to mix colours.”
“I know, but I think you might have made a bit of a mistake.”
“No Mrs Andrews. I’ve been practising at home with my felt-tip pens. I’m dead good at mixing now.”
“I’m sure you are. It’s just that…pink would be more normal.”
Charlotte shrugged and continued blobbing paint onto her picture, until the forehead, nose and cheeks were all a dazzling emerald colour. “I heard mommy say this morning that daddy would be green with envy when he saw our next-door neighbour’s new car.”
