challenges 26, 153, 139


Challenge 26: Draw anything I want. I drew Snickers and Gilbert napping on my bed.




Pigma pen and watercolor












Challenge 139: draw something with a handle. This is my French horn case-- just a doodle with my Lamy Safari pen.


















Challenge 153: Draw something wrapped in plastic. This baggie of shells and a stone from a beach in Puerto Rico is still sitting on my desk.

LInd these are great. I really like the way you were able to illustrate fur. I find I have such a hard time with that. The shells are wonderful too!

Linda, I got so tickled just now as I followed your EDM link to your blog for the first time. (I'm a new member.) The first thing I saw was your wonderful cat drawing. I have two black cats and am afraid to attempt them. Then, I scrolled down and saw your french horn case! I've played french horn for 35 years! My husband played string bass when we met, so I enjoyed your chello? in its case, too. Wonderful drawings!!

These are all great, love the napping cats and the bag of shells and stones is excellent.

I never expected that I would enjoy this challenge of something wrapped in plastic so much. Maybe it's because each one is so different! Yours is interesting both for the shells at the bottom of the bag and for the interesting shapes the plastic makes further up on the page. Love your cat sketches, too.

Linda, your sketches are delightful, as are Snickers & Gilbert! I especially love how you drew the shells & rock in plastic.

The drawing of the clear plastic bag: really like your sparse use of color to get the 'feel'. I am about to attempt same with my drawings.

These are nice. Whenever I try to draw our cats they decide to come and see what I'm doing. And you know that means standing on my drawing.

Great job Linda...such a delicate refined touch you have in all your peices. The shells in the bag are lovely.

Thanks for the warm welcome to EDM. It's such a great pleasure to have the company of people who share some of the same dreams.

I am fascinated by your work. ;)
