In an effort to get back into drawing again after a 10 day break, I decided to take part in a weekend drawing class to find inspiration and get into the swing of things again. The subject of the class was the zoo, and animals are right up my alley. The stars were in alignment as were the pen and brush.
Here are a couple of the sketches that came out of the exercise. Ringtailed lemurs and a grizzly bear. I won't go into the debate of the benefits and faults of zoos, but to say that I don't approve of them entirely, especially for displaying animals that are not endangered or for large animals housed in inadequate enclosures.
