Still Drawing

I have found that drawing, simply the act of recreating something on the page, or on an ATC, is important for me. I have been doing it every day, even if it is just a sketch. I think this is the only way to get better at it.

This dog picture, well, I don't hate it! I used a reference photo and actually got the proportions relatively right!

I'm still having problems coming up with backgrounds, though, as you can see. I get a drawing the way I want it, get it colored, and then get stuck about what to put behind or around it. It's a real challenge for me and I've not yet figured out how to approach it.
