Sketching Excursion- Berlin's Museum of Natural History/Science

in art •  10 months ago

Sketching from life is something I love doing. Sadly, if you wish to draw exotic animals, it isn't the most accessible subject in the middle of an urban city. Alternatives have to be found, and that's when a trip to a museum of natural history comes in handy!

In this post, I share some sketches of various animals I made on such an excursion: 

All of these were made with a 5B pencil.

But what if the taxidermy is simply wrong?


That is a fair point. My one argument would be that it is a great learning tool.

very nice drawings.


thank you very much!

Cool study @nadejdaalienor! I really need to make more time to study form from life. In the meantime, you should check out I just stumbled across it yesterday.
