Thank you Nolan for another lovely class. I am in the throes of moving house but couldn't resist this captivating drawing while resting of a night.  Thank you. Comments and critiques are always welcomed.   Patricia

I love this Drawing :smitten: and youve done a fantastic job of it Patricia.  :clap: ......I have one teeny critic and that is to me his whiskers seem more prominent on his right side but  almost non existant on his left side. Otherwise perfect as always.  :)

 :thankyou:  Foto for your lovely comment which I appreciate.
Oh! Val, you are so very precious. You had me screaming with laughter again.  Just love it.   :thankyou:  for always being so encouraging.


 :thankyou:  Win for your lovely comments too. I see what you mean and I shall darken the existing whiskers on his left side which are there but not dark enough.

So good to see your drawings again, Kathy!

The little dog is so cute.  Maybe add a bit more shading to bring out the grain in the wood.

Kathy, I thought that I had remarked on your beautiful drawing of the dog at the gate but was horrified that I never. My apologies for you did a stunning job and it is so nice to see your work again.
