Another Horse

I drew this horse sketch from a plastic figurine that I bought at a toy store. I think they are made by a company called Schleich, and the statues have a lot of anatomical detail.

UMMA Horse

I have the worst time trying to draw horses, so I've been sketching some horse statues, like my favorite one at The UMMA museum in Ann Arbor.

Giraffe Sketch

I haven't had a chance to get back to the zoo this year because of the cooler weather, so I've been working on animal sketching from my photographs. The giraffe wasn't sticking out his tongue in real life, but it just seemed right to add it!

Geese Gesture Sketches

Quick sketches of the geese that I saw in Riverside Park. I was trying to capture as many positions as I could. I know some of the geese look like they are trying to look up the other's butts, but it's just the way they ended up on the page.

I went for a walk in Riverside Park in Ypsilanti and I saw the resident geese by the side of the river. My friend said they might be ducks, but I think they are geese.

My daffodils bloomed early this year because of a warm spell so I thought I would sketch them before the cold got them. They are my favorite flower.
