A young inspiring artist

Stopped in katsea gallery to take in Kat Kline’s closing show yesterday and was treated to viewing a young visiting artist working on a drawing at my make-shift drafting table. I have this drafting table/work desk set up in my art space at the gallery for just this purpose, young visitors can have an opportunity to do a little drawing while their parents wander the gallery.

I worked a little with her on one of her drawings by showing her an example of how to make this random squiggle design with black color pencil. She made this one. I colored in three small areas to show her the next step. She colored in the rest of the areas.

When she was done I offered a trade. Her artwork (with a couple of colors by me) for one of my ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ ArtStory books. She accepted.

Bonus observation. I was tickled by the fact that she put every color pencil back in the box after using that one and getting out another.

I would have had the pencils laying everywhere, lol.
