Where the oprey and buffalo roam

I was talking the Sheila the other day and she made the remark that she could not see any improvement in her work since she started drawing  in November.  Now, you might think a couple of months is not enough time, but  it got me thinking , have I improved since I started back in June of '11?

I am trying techniques that I have never tried before, but because each technique is new, my first efforts "do not demonstrate a proficiency."   I decided that maybe I need to do the project more than once.  Here are the result of a couple of different projects. 

 eagle 1
 eagle 2
 eagle 3 and 4
 buffalo 1
Buffalo 2-  The bison will have be reposted after they are complete.

I have come to the conclusion it may take me longer than most to see improvement.  My second, third, and even fourth attempts seem to render the same result as my first efforts.


  1. I think all your eagles look great, so I see your point, but on the other hand, don't you feel so much smarter than when you started back with lessons? You've experienced so many different styles and tried so many things. It's the journey....

  2. I like your post & I will always be coming frequently to read more of your post.
