Eagle WIP 2

I have made some more progress on the background of the eagle. I am finding I would much rather be shading in the eagle instead of messing with the background. I obviously need a lot more practice on trees and landscapes. I'll be putting that on my to do list, so hopefully one day it won't be so frustrating. Glad I had quite a few hours to work on it today. It was definitely needed. Also wondering what possessed me to draw so large this time?? And wondering how I am going to scan this when I'm finished so that the image is good?? hmmmm...I guess one struggle at a time.

Eagle WIP 1

I finally have had time to upload a photo of the bald eagle progress. It isn't the best of images, but it gives you the idea of where I'm at on the drawing.

Fabriano Artistico Paper

After much paper testing for what will work best for my graphite drawings, this is definitely the winner of my paper search journey:  Hot Pressed Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Paper.
