Raptor life drawings

I spent a couple of hours in a Wildpark close to Munich which opened again after months and managed to finish the attached studies of a Peregrine falcon and a Black-chested buzzard-eagle a new species to me.

Munich zoo quick studies

I managed to visit the Munich zoo yesterday after months , because it was closed due to lockdown, and even now I had to book my visit on time since there is only a certain number of visitors per day allowed. The weather was cold and rainy for the most part of the morning, so I had to move on regularly and sketch as quick as I could. My studies include the female Snowy owl, budgerigars and Hartmann`s mountain zebra.

New field work

Attached some life studies I did lately. A Tawny owl, Mute swan ,Greylag goose and a Canada goose from Nymphenburg park and a common buzzard sketched today very close to Munich from a distance aided by my scope
