 :thankyou: Kathy K. Yes, It is amazing what a big difference a little adjustment can make.

 :thankyou: Jennylynn, Nope, it wasn't your eyes. You were right about the top being slightly off. Here is yet another take of the drawing.

I do appreciate all of you for mentioning these little things as you are helping me to grow.  :hug:

Nice work on the bottle, KathyS.   Isn't it fun to draw just simple things around the house!

I'm with you on that JennyLynn.  We learn from each little area we go back and correct.  :deal:

Kathy,
Good for you that you step out and try your own things. I too am a lefty and sometimes struggle with watching the lessons. I have to remember to turn the page sometimes.   :)

It seems like there are a number of us lefties on PB! After a lifetime of living in a right handed world, adjustments almost happen automatically, don't they!  O0

I've been looking at this glass dog on my desk for weeks thinking that I'd like to draw him someday but it looked like too difficult of a drawing for me at this point. Well, I decided that since this dog was calling loudly too me, I would take the plunge.

I have a lot yet to learn to get the correct detail but here is my first attempt. I'd love some feedback. This one was tough to do.

Wow, KathyS, that's great.  Your skills are increasing rapidly!!

A few more darker darks will make it look shinier.

Kathy:  Good start.  I think there should be more highlights on the legs and if the table was a little darker the highlight on his back would show up better.

I love following this thread and see you make the little tweaks! Your freehand drawings are so good and are such an inspiration!  :clap: I'd like to soon start practicing drawing freehand too! (I draw with grid lines when I try drawings...)  :)

 :thankyou: Thank you so much Cheryl.

 I'm glad my thread can be an inspiration to you. This forum and all of our PB friends really do help us to grow, don't they!

Most of my recent drawings have been completely free hand but not this glass dog. For him, I used a light box to trace the basic outline. I wanted to put my energy and eye into the shading and highlights.  ;)
