Today’s portrait is of artist Beth —, known on flickr as Polusladkaia. Trivia fact: I think if we count all variations, Elizabeth is the most common name at JKPP. In any event, I encourage everyone to browse Beth’s wonderful work here: www.flickr.com/photos/fuzzyimagearts/

I really wanted to draw Beth in a colorful way reflecting the rich palette I love so much in her paintings, but I got bogged down in the color and ended up working over it all with this more limited palette.

We’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 300 artists drawing each other! Please visit the Portrait Party at: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/
