As you may be aware, I love the monthly meetings with Cambridge Urban Sketchers - #USKCambridge. On Saturday we visited the Zoology Museum in Downing Street, Cambridge. Although there was a large group of us, there are two floors to explore and we all managed to fit in among the visitors.
I headed to the lower floor where the animal skeletons are and found a seat in front of the large display cases. These exhibits are lit so well they throw the most wonderful shadows. So here are my sketches using a black 0.5mm fineliner. A red howler and a brown hare.
After the photos of all the sketches and the group we headed for the cafe which overlooks the huge whale. Here we look at all the sketchbooks over a cup of tea. As I ate my brie and grape panini I was devastated to learn that the cafe would be closing as it was not profitable. Such a shame that this lovely place is unable to survive as people prefer the expensive brand coffee shops.
