I keep saying over and over that I need to sketch and draw more. Lately, it’s hard to remember to keep my skills up and just DRAW when I focus most of my time on work and school. So this weekend’s trip to the La Brea Tar Pits and LA Natural History Museum seemed like the perfect opportunity to put my money where my mouth is. I tried to keep everything to around 10-15 seconds worth of sketching, mainly because the rest of my group gets bored easily, and there were a LOT of people around trying to see the exhibits. But I did manage to get some decent sketches in! I think the rhino turned out especially well. I also took pictures of some of the better poses, so hopefully I can do some more detailed sketches based off of those later.
I also hope to be able to fill up my portfolio with more life sketches at the zoo or something. It’s quite hard to sketch animals in motion, so I’m happy to get some practice with non-moving (read: stuffed) animals first! 🙂
