Expanding horizons

One of my goals this year is to do more sketches of people and animals. I find that I'm often avoiding them because they never seem good enough. Of course, it's hard to get better if you don't practice. So that's what I've been doing. This is a couple of quick sketches of one of our ferrets. These were done from photographs. The ferrets are seldom still enough for life drawings.

On a somewhat related note, one of my favorite blogs lately is Gurney Journey, James Gurney's blog. Currently he's doing a series on animal characters and he has been doing a Sunday series on color and palettes. I've learned quite a bit from following his blog.
