Master Artist Marcel Franquelin

This micron pen drawing with purposely left pencil sketch marks was a birthday gift for one of the most talented artists I know. Marcel has his own art school and is not only a master oil painter but a jaw dropping artist with pencil and pastel. You can see the image I based this sketch on at the bottom center of his art school website. The penguin is an inside joke obviously.

Sheila,
I love this portrait of your friend. I know he must love the portrait also. Great Work! I am learning a lot about the web with this blog, I now know what a "avatar" is in cyberspace.

Well done Sheila, your drawing captured how engrossed he is on his drawing even better than his photo!

Wonderful portrait of your friend, Sheila! The penguin is a fun addition. Also, thank you for your compliment about my having a painting in Southwest Art - it is pretty cool!
