My first effort, of a wolverine showing a wide-open mouth of ferocious teeth, was not terribly successful.
So I gave up on that and moved on to the nearby "Terror Bird" skeleton, which turned out a bit better (perhaps I'm just more inspired by birds).
Next I moved on to a lovely Northwest Forest display with an otter -- who can resist an otter? Now I seemed to be hitting my stride, and I was happy with the resulting sketch.
Then I headed to the anthropology section for my last drawing of the day. There's a very colorful, life-size exhibit of a Korean wedding ceremony that has always caught my eye on past visits, but I always felt intimidated by its complexity. Plus the place was usually too crowded to get a good view. This day, though, the museum had little traffic, and I felt it was time to give it a go.
Yes! I'll admit to doing a light pencil sketch first to make sure I had everything in the right place (normally I draw directly in ink). I spent a lot more time on it than I typically do on a drawing, and was very pleased with the effort.
On Sunday the sun came out in all its full glory -- tune in tomorrow for more sketching fun.
