Periscope went to the Oregon Zoo on a life drawing trip Wednesday. I LOOOOVE our zoo life drawing trips! It's great practice, plus all of the usual fun you get at the zoo. Cute kids, cool animals, friends, walking around outside, and drawing. The best things. You can see my sketches from our 2011 trip here.
This year I wasn't thrilled with my drawings--a lot of these felt like steps backwards--but there were a couple I was really happy with. We might be going again next month, and if we do I plan to spend a longer period of time with fewer animals, so I can actually nail down their constructions.
