We had a large group this time, with most sketchers soldiering on for the best part of six hours!
Drawing in public with such skilled comrades is intimidating and inspiring. You should definitely try it.. unless you were there. Thanks for coming, it was awesome!
I got myself a ‘friends of the zoo’ pass, so i can save money if i go a million times in the next year.
I discovered that my conte pencil (which doesn’t smudge much because it’s HB) makes a really good wash! I used my DS in the nocturnal house; others fared just as well with paper.
