Zoo

Today I visited the Dallas Zoo with some friends from Drink and Draw and a group from A Bunch of Short Guys. The goal was to socialize, enjoy the day and get in some much-needed practice with drawing from observation/drawing live animals.

My horrible, botched drawing of the day. +2 points to whoever guesses correctly what animal it's supposed to be.

This one was hastily done and might garner some more attention to clean up the shadows and smooth out the broad strokes.

I love drawing and need all the practice I can get with drawing from observation so today was a welcome oasis of beneficial practices and camaraderie. I look forward to the next outing like this one!

I know this is a bit of a stretch for the 29 Faces Challenge, but see that others include animal faces in their entries so I figured it would be kosher. I still plan on doing more than 3 human faces to finish out this month.
