ALL IN A DAYS WORK





The day was overcast all day. I was planning to go sit in a beautiful little park around the corner and do some plein air painting but sunny California was missing the sun today. I spent the day drawing in my sketch book with a new pen. I love the extra fine point which provides lots of detail. Tomorrow will be a day out of the house, with or without sun.

All those sketches are so good! I like the way you catch the expressions in those lines.Weathered faces are perfect for drawing..I like them very much!

Can you tell me what the pen is? I am on the lookout for a good very fine pen - too frustrated with the rapidograph clogging up. I just bought a prismacolor pen set that I have to experiment with and have my eyes on a staedtler. -Janet

You do such lovely portrait work, Myrna! The whole grouping together is just fantastic...sorry about the portrait gallery competition results.

Wow! Do I wish I could draw like you.

I especially like the angles of view you always come up with. They are unusual and surprising.

What pen is it you were using ?

These are wonderful. I enjoy seeing your drawings as much as your beautiful paintings.

You are so good at sketching and bringing the characters to life with just a few lines.
