It can be hard to see your own progress. I started drawing and painting seriously almost exactly two and a half years ago. One of the first pictures I made, in February of 2015, was of my blue bathrobe. The other day I drew that same bathrobe again. When I finished, I wasn't sure I was totally happy with how my picture had turned out. But then it occurred to me to dig out my old version and compare the two. And I was pleasantly surprised to discover: I've improved!
