sketchbook monday

Landscape study, watercolour. I'm trying to do a lot more work from reference. Specifically here I was trying to work on getting the foliage to look right, and while I think this still needs work its a big improvement over previous attempts to draw plants in watercolour.
This came from one of my ideas for my summer brief. I'm trying to work on doing more traditional work and on using more colour.
Sketches of two buildings completed while waiting for trains.

Dudley Zoo

Here are some sketches that I did when I visited Dudley zoo with Ness

flamingos, owls raven and chimpanzees.


kookaburra, bear and baboon.

tigers and giraffe,

 wallaby and giraffe

otters and tortoise,

kangaroo, tapir and mountain sheep,
I had a great time at the zoo and it was great to meet up with Ness (even if she did put me through the terrifying experience of the chairlift :))
