We drew at three locations, the Conservatory at Volunteer Park, the Seattle Asian Art Museum and my favorite, the Woodland Park Zoo. It's been years since I visited the zoo, the diversity of the animals at Woodland Park is amazing. Emus, ocelots and elephants, oh my! Above is a barred owl, who slowly moved his head around checking out the other raptors and people watching him.

Drawing at the zoo
Tuesday I completed a six session class, "Drawing outside the studio" taught by Barbara Fugate. The focus was expanding our mark making vocabulary, making marks that move, touch and feel. What an inspiring way to spend Tuesday afternoons, it was a treat to get away from the computer and get my hands dirty with conte crayon filling up a 9 x 12 sketchbook.
