Today I took my Friday art group to the Zoology Museum in Cambridge. The museum is not fully open yet, that happens on 23 June, but it is still a great place to draw.
We met outside at 10am and walked around the gallery choosing which of the wonderful exhibits we were going to draw, then retreated to the Whale Cafe for a bit of sustenance before returning to the gallery and getting our pencils out.
We had each chosen a different creature to draw. Clare choose a black rhinoceros skull, Graham tackled an African elephant, Winnie drew a giant turtle and Ya Su, who is a new student and has never been to out to draw, choose a rabbit. I was so impressed by the results and I asked the lovely attendant to take a photo of us 'urban sketchers style' with our drawings.
What did I draw? I fell in love with a very cross seabream skeleton. When I showed this to a friend he thought it looked like a political cartoon of a politician! ....I know what he means.
