At The Zoo
I took myself to the zoo to sketch. I got to use my brand new Derwent bag, but I forgot a paper towel, so any mistakes in color I was just stuck with. I took my 3 legged chair and it worked perfectly. Most people said not a word to me. One little girl said "she's a painter" and inside I felt pretty proud at that.
Here the female kept pacing, so I didn't record her at all.
The lions were my best subject. They just slept in the sun.
The camel cooperated only so much, I never did get their head. There were two of them and they kept moving their heads around each other and then completely changed positions.
At the Penguin cove I got some contour drawing done.
The pig just slept while I was there. A sleeping animal is so much easier to draw. That is all I did in the two hours I was there. The next time I will stay longer.
Some music for your enjoyment.
