some sketches from the zoo today

by janedotx7

After much emotional agony, I’ve discovered that I like quick
sketches. I like the challenge of quickly discovering the platonic
forms that lie within each subject, and the time limit imposed by my
subjects’ moving around forces me to find only the most relevant
details to refine those forms. And for dynamic subjects, my lines find
a beauty and efficiency that I never produce when I have the luxury of
unlimited time.

Anyway, another trip to the zoo is clearly in order. God, I love
animals. Every time I look at one, I am humbly reminded that the
imagination of nature greatly supersedes that of humankind’s.
