Pen on Paper (Moleskine notebook)

Some cleanup in photoshop and using Juxtaposer App on my iPod Touch to lay the graph pattern back in over the white out.

Today’s quadruple portrait is of American Artist Melinda Bilecki with her “Sweet Girl” and USA-based Canadian Artist Janis McElmurry with Shadow. Thank you for the opportunity to add your canine companions to my Portrait Party portraits.

I enjoy Melinda’s delicate, detailed line drawings and Melinda’s vivid, flowing watercolors. Both make wonderful images of the places they travel (some real and some imagined).
