Time I started drawing. A nice free day at last to draw. I am doing the complete animal so it will take me awhile. Lots of hair... It's good practice. It's pretty much at the ugly stage on the head. hopefully it will get better as I work on it.

We could not believe it ....We were driving along the road to take pictues of the Moulton Barn on Morman row Jackson hole. As we had not seen any Buffalo or Bison close up...Nev said no problem Doreen when we get toi the Barn the Buffalo will be there with the wife and kids and even the relos. Well we laughed so much because as we arrived there...Here were the herd and we stopped the car and they just strolled passed us...We could have touched them. No zooms here.
Just waiting to get the the photos resized from Dubois.
Oh we are having the best time and there is so much more to come....

Another Kangaroo. Nev took some great shot and now I am hooked on drawing them all. LOL.
I am getting in as much drawing as possible as while I am away I expect we will be too busy with all the sightseeing and taking photos. It will be a while before I put pencil to paper. Maybe I will get a little time in the evenings to do some quick sketches, especially when I have had my Dick Blick fix. I can't wait to get into that store. I will have to watch I don't spend to much of the holiday dollars. hehehe.
