Zoo Tripping and Tips

I visited the Oakland Zoo last week. I took some video which will hopefully give me some good sketch fodder. I also did some quick sketching of the animals and humans, including my favorite: the Crowned Crane.

I recently skimmed through a book on quick sketching. One of the tips was to have an inverse ratio between the size of the subject and the size of the sketch. Another was to have in mind the purpose of each particular sketch. It’s a good read, though I didn’t go through each exercise as the book suggests.
