Yesterday I spent the day at Colchester Zoo. It was another great day out, there were some different animals to see since my last visit too. I took lots of photos (over 300!), so have plenty of reference images to work from. Here are some of the photos I took - there are a few more on my Flickr page aswell.
I did some sketching too - I always feel awkward drawing with other people around watching me. It's hard to draw animals as they move so much and when someone looks over my shoulder and says "that's good" I think "no it's not, it's rubbish!" - the little scribbly lines might mean something to me but I never think they would look very good to anyone else!
