100130 Zoo and Balmoral

Not only do I need to draw people - but I want to be able to draw animals better - so I became a member of the Zoo (Taronga Zoo, Sydney,) and went for 1.5 hours this afternoon. Not really there long enough to get into the swing of sketching fast moving animals.

So... I decided to draw some architecture...

100130 Zoo Elephant House

but wasn't meant to be completed
100130 Zoo Monkeys then Balmoral
Next I went to the spider monkeys and scribbled for a bit. It was then closing time so I went down to Balmoral beach, for a wander and a sketch and a....

cup of tea. Was intending to just draw the view...but I couldn't resist - could I? It is a week since I last posted a tea sketch.

Almost forgot...
100130 Zoo Main Building
On the way out of the zoo, I did another architecture sketch.


  1. Well, these are all wonderful! I love your art. I always enjoy seeing how you practice when you're learning something new. Inspiring! The landscape coupled with the tea setting inside is beautiful.

  2. Great sketches Liz - I particularly like that one of Balmoral Beach.

    I remember taking my niece age 3 to Taronga Zoo for her birthday. It's such a great setting for a zoo. I seem to remember some very naughty chimps as well!
