Next Portrait in Progress

This is another one of my little four year old ballerinas. That age is just so much fun to work with. They present so many different emotions in such a short time. They go from happy to sad at the blink of an eye. They can be so focused into whatever they are learning at that very moment. Then as all mothers know that curiousity becomes agitation and frustration.

Needless to say that age is just a blast to work with -especially for an artist. I have a ton of photos from my ballerina photo shoot and my only problem is deciding which one to paint next.

Once I finish the drawing this little girl will be my next watercolor painting.


  1. Great drawing, Kathy. I'm looking forward to seeing the watercolor portrait of your little ballerina!

  2. Kathy, I am excited to be able to see your blog. Your people studies are great. I love your soft touch. Thanks for the comment on my blog, it is what helped me find your blog. I also wanted to thank you for the thoughtful gift you brought to Larry's house. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
