My New Teacher, Ms. Potter

Drawing has always been something of a challenge for me. It occurred to me that if I didn't practice I wouldn't get any better. So tonight I pulled out some inspiration in the form of Mrs. Rabbit. Beatrix Potter's illustrations have captivated my imagination my whole life. The eye of a naturalist with the wit to dress rabbits, mice and frogs in waistcoats and dresses. 
I can't think of a better teacher (that I don't have to leave the house to meet)
