Sketch Class to Brookfield Zoo

I hadn't been to the zoo in many years! It was a beautiful day but hard to find what to work on. This photo is what I ended up doing in pen and ink. Will post the sketch later.

This dogwood is a variety that does well in the north. My son has one in his yard. It has more pointed petals.

I took photos of the various quotes that were sometimes carved into stone or posted above some of the entrances to the different animal buildings.

The pelicans were so graceful and so white in the sun.
