June 2010: I intend to continue to profile contemporary artists once or twice a week. On the other days, I intend to draw… whatever I darn well feel like!

Polish Artist Beata Wielgos-Dunikowska is known as Smooth Design on flickr. In these portraits, she’s older, grumpier, and more colorful – just as I indicated in the Party guidelines!

I really was trying to get Beata’s wonderful smile in all three but sometimes these things don’t work out…

You can see Beata’s wonderful drawings and watercolors on her flickr imagestream:

Photos of Beata and other artists’ portraits of her can be seen here:…

julia_kayWe’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 200 artists drawing each other! Here is Beata’s portrait of me from the party. If you’re an artist who’d like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at:
