I was alternating between this and another project, so I’m not sure how much time – probably 46-60 minutes.

Today’s portrait for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party (JKPP) is of artist Manuel Grote, known on flickr as sketchmanni. You can see his wonderful work here: www.flickr.com/photos/sketchmanni/with/5296147015/

I have really enjoyed writing about everyone’s work when I make my first portrait of them. However, I’ve realized that it keeps me from making portraits because of the time involved in making all the links and writing the descriptions.

So in the interest of more portraits, there’s going to be less writing. Instead, I encourage everyone to follow the link above and check out Manuel’s imagestream for themselves.
