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.

Thylacine or Tasmanian tiger -The adventure of a study

..The Thylacine is a legendary species which lived in Australia and Tasmania and seems that is already extinct, since there is no credible evidence that the animal still exist for decades now. Attached, my efforts to depict the animal, starting with the initial pencil drawing , and showing the process step by step to the finished pen drawing. Eventually , I noticed several mistakes on his anatomy, decided to revise the image, started a couple of watercolours, and managed to complete at least one . Forgot to mention that videos taken in Hobart zoo( Tasmania) in the 30`s of last century have been a great help while creating my image.

Riesa city-Saxony-life studies

I`m just back from a short family holiday trip to Riesa city( close to Dresden). Despite the extreme hot weather I managed to go outside and do some fieldwork as  well a more detailed architectural study of the Trinitatis church , the most characteristic of the city.
The old cemetery provided a rich bird life with golden orioles, Green woodpeckers, a lot of  Wood pigeons and a variety of songbirds like Common redstart. Brown hares were also common there and Red kites flew above the city all the time..
