Thanks Merlin. I really do need to study more from life and post more often, but I don't have much time for art, less my own stuff, so it's a case of squeezing the odd hour in when I can.
You've brought me into the third page of my SB though, so I'll try to keep the posts more regular!
A couple of bone studies first, then some landscapes with bits and pieces from outdoors and exercises from the book I'm reading.
The last picture is a restart of the eagle I'm doing in digital. I made the same mistake with it I made with my last digital attempt - blocked in using less than 100% opacity and left myself extra work for layering and blending. I figured it was quicker to start over.
