“It took me four years to draw like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” – Pablo Picasso

There is probably nothing more truthful than a child’s opinion. One crucial channel to express a child’s thoughts and emotions is drawing and painting. Although children do not know anything about perspectives, proportions, light, shadow and every other tool to make a picture look realistic, a child’s painting is filled with creativity and fantasy. Indeed, this is why we should be jealous of the little ones.

Of course, artists didn’t fail to notice the potential of a child’s imagination, making use of the works of their children, nieces, nephews and smaller siblings as the base of their own master pieces. With the aid of advanced techniques these scribbles are employed as a foundation to create real artful pieces which keep the honesty of a child depicted by the professionalism of an artist.

Well, keep the following in mind: “Every Child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” – Picasso
