Hey Ray3

Nice job on the owl.  The eyes and feet are especially good.  I have a tough time with bird feet, but yours look really good.

Isn't it fun to try a new medium??

Ok, Ray.  I will give bird feet another shot.

So far, I have been trying to take everyone's advice so I can learn.

Hey, Patricia, if you are out there, I took your advice and have started drawing every day, like you suggested.  I can see a huge difference already.  I bought a cute pouch to keep in my purse - so have pencils and sketch pad with me all the time now.

Hmmm.. I will post some of my earliest sketches with ones I am doing now.

 :thankyou: Doina it can be disastrous I too have had my disasters but I have found  it's a lot like watercolour painting and graphite you have to use light to dark and then using a burnishing pencil to get the results you want

 :think:   Seems my comment has run amok!  :detective:   Probably hit a wrong symbol on the tablet yesterday.  :doh:

So, Ray.... here's what I think or thought yesterday...  ::)   You've done a lovely job on this little fellow. I've always thought these guys look so sad...perhaps just pensive. Anyway, the soft colours suit him well, and he is very well drawn.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

I have just read these posts again and Mea, my apologies for I missed your post about drawing every day.  Good for you. Wish I could do the same but life is so busy for this old girl and of course, I am slowing down which makes it worse!!!  I always say I need to take a time management course.  Anyway, good to hear you are taking a sketch book with you wherever you go.  Wonderful for as Dennis always tells us, practice makes perfect.
