These are the other Lonesome Dove drawings I did while traveling. Also, a drawing of my friend, Linda. She has one of those faces that look like it will be easy to get a likeness but in reality is very difficult to capture. I will keep at it because I think she is so elegant and has great features.

We landed at the John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. They have a HUGE bronze statue of the "Duke" with an oversized American Flag behind him. I was able to take some exciting photographs shooting upwards with wonderful distortion of perspective. I am working on designing a painting for the challenge in November. I will post the challenge tomorrow night. I am still considering aspects of the challenge to include. October's challenge was a bust for me but I did learn some things. Hopefully, I will have more success with November.

Those are so truly wonderful. I admire your ability to sculpt the features with simple brush strokes!

I started to have fun with the elegant Writer - while it made me go through all the curses in my trilingual vocabulary when I tried it on my regular (high quality) sketchbook, it really does wonders on smooth paper!

Linda looks beautiful, although I never met her but you definetely captured her elegance.
Everybody keeps talking about the elegant writer,how wonderful it is, can somebody tell me what is this magical pen?

I love these sketches, Myrna! Just a touch of color from the elegant writer (will have to find one of those) makes them shine.
