Living in the country, there are not many places I can go to conveniently. No grocery store closeby, no mall, no restaurants. What IS conveniently close to me though is the Capital of Texas Zoo. Thank heavens I don't have to travel very far to study and draw animals. Because it's close, I don't feel compelled to spend all day there to make the trip worth while. Zoo drawing can be exhausting, with the heat, crowds, and the general humbling experience of drawing animals. These sketches are the result of a modest 3 hour visit to the zoo.
Until next time,
