I'm only good at copying and tracing or horses. :classic_blush:

That's okay!  Tracing is a good way to train your eye to see more detail and learn proportion thus improving your freehand skills.  I was horrible at drawing birds freehand up until a few years ago when I started tracing (or using the grid transfer method).

Yeah so... I did this with a touchpad using 32 colors on a computer running windows 98

That's pretty cool using the older application.

I painted this Shoebill cartoon yesterday (mostly watercolors).  @birdbrain22, how did I do?

Hey...um...anyone else drawing birds?  Here's a fun painting I made for spring (pen & ink + watercolors).

MJ's seven year old granddaughter gave this to MJ today for her birthday tomorrow. Talented young girl that knows how much MJ enjoys the birds, which put a big birthday smile on her face.
