Sketching at The Granby Zoo in Granby, Canada
Yesterday, I took my my sketching class to The Granby Zoo in Canada. I love drawing at the zoo. The down side is for the first hour I was on a visual overload. There was so much I wanted to draw. I also realized, I need to get better at drawing animals from life. I did well with the gestures, but when it came to longer studies, I struggled with the movement of the animals and working form memory.
Here is one of my stronger sketches. (I added color digitally in class as part of a demonstration on how to take the sketches and add limited color.) The Japanese Macaques were holding still long enough for me to get a stronger drawing.
