I found the perfect toys to paint while buying a puppet for a one year old last week.  I thought I might try a few sketches with pastels. I gave the puppet to Jona and kept the helicopters.

It’s clear to me that the blue helicopter wants to be much darker in value.  These little toys will be fun to paint in both oil and watercolor.

I darkened the lower portion of the red helicopter, too.
