I’ve been in an art funk lately, and decided that I needed to step away from the photos and get in some quality life drawing time. That’s why I love the zoo! There are so many different living things to draw, and they don’t usually stay still for very long, so its really good practice in quick gesture drawings. I mean, you could draw the sloth and take your time, but that’s cheating (plus, she was in the nocturnal house so it was too dark.) You will notice that some of the animals I sketched are sleeping, though, so. . .
Also, there were tons of little kids around who acted super impressed by my drawing skills, and that gave me a huge boost in confidence. It was a nice day at the zoo.
