Her adept abilities also applied to her pen and ink drawings where again she captured the souls of her subject’s and the intricate textures of different coats and hair patterns.  Noel was one of the rare artists who could go out in a field and draw a moving animal with accuracy and precision.  She was truly gifted and had an acute ability to breath life into her subjects regardless of the challenges of difficult mediums or live painting in the field.  She was the artist we all wanted to be.
