I`ve spend the whole morning in the zoo today., hoping to make some gesture studies of the mountain hares.They are getting their winter coat at the moment,looking exceptionaly attractive. Eventually , I decided to make a study of the most white one and didn`t regret it.I`ve used mixed media including Copic markers, Faber-Castell pitt pens, and white Gelly roll pen on Moleskine watercolour paper

Berlin trip -mainly zoo (Tierpark) studies

 I spend a week in Berlin visiting relatives. Unfortunately it was rainy and windy almost all the time, and the only I managed to do was to visit the Natural history museum and the Zoo in East Berlin, only for a morning , a foggy one. Attached , speedy sketches from the Zoo visit,a sketch of a stuffed Harpy eagle  with a macaw as a prey from the museum, as well a study of a co-traveler in the train on our way back to Munich
