Plants and Animals
More sketches and painting! The pencil drawings/half-watercolored sheets are all studies that I did at Lincoln Park Zoo of some of the animals. Man! It is so tough to draw these guys while they're all moving around, especially the monkeys and the birds because they keep jumping and flying around all over the place (the monkeys don't fly... they don't have that sort of species at the zoo). I can't remember what the name of that plant is, but that painting is from the Garfield Park Conservatory, which is absolutely gorgeous inside. Drawing plants is pretty easy compared to the animals, but you still have to get in just as much detail and form.
