One of the places I like to take my animals studies students to is The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in New Hampshire. This has a great place to draw animals from observation.
One of the things I keep reminding my self about drawing is the need to keep drawing on a regular basis. Prior to the class, I was not drawing as much as I should and it took me a few days to get back into it. by the time we went to the science center, I was doing well again.
The sketches were done on-sight and the painting was completed later using Adobe Sketch on my iPad pro.
