Getting Sketchy at the Zoo

What an amazing day sketching at the zoo! Not only did we have great weather but we got to see so many wonder animals with fabulous textures and colors.  As my first outing with the Urban Sketchers, I wasn't sure what to expect. The day far exceeded my expectations. It was great to have all that time to sketch, but also to talk about what tools and supplies we all use, and even share our sketch books with each other when we finished up. I also enjoyed seeing people's reactions to us sketching. So many curious children would peek over and ask to see. It was a great reminder that we all started out that way. 

I appreciated the welcome into the group with open arms. Mark does a great job leading! I hope to meet more of you in the near future!

Feeding time show with the Seals / Sea Lions.

We spent a good deal of time with the birds. They were flying all around us. So many wonderful colors!


  1. Nice Mike. Some really good sketches. Glad you were able to join us.

  2. Mike you really got a number of sketches done at the zoo. I love the sketches of the zoo, especially the one with its mouth open that seems to be barking. Nice!

    1. Yes Joan, it was a great day of sketching! Thanks for your kind words!
