March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is American Donna McMenamin. She makes fabulous, sympatico portraits in bright colors and with a light touch, and is also an illustrator and graphic designer.

You can check out Donna’s watercolor paintings here:
