Back from another trip, a new work in progress

We just came back from a late fall trip to Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.
Before we left on the trip I did more work on my drawings. The Jolly Drummer got another dancer. I did a search on the internet for a similar Han Dynasty terracotta figure, adjusted the shadows and put it in. Doing a test run on the computer helped with deciding scale and placement of the addition.
I put The Two Roman Heads on the wall and noticed it needed more work on the background to expand it and the back head's pedestal perspective wasn't correct. That will have to be corrected this month.
On this recent trip we stopped at West La Fayette, IN to visit one of my neices. She is a physics grad student at Purdue and recently adopted a Shiba Inu dog (a Japanese breed). I took photos and just worked up a small (8 x 10 inches) drawing in Derwent Drawing pencils on steel gray Canson Mi-teintes paper.
