AMNH Session 3

Here are some museum sketches I did yesterday. Spent the day with the African Mammals - just love that hall. Started with the Ostrich, but quickly moved on to my favorite subject on that floor, the White-Mantled Colobus Monkey...

These stunning creatures are displayed so well, their window so beautiful, I can never tear myself away from the spot. Spent the next few hours sketching a dozen of them in pen and markers..

  1. Hey Kaukab, these are great! I especially love the ones with the marker.

  2. I've always loved the sketchy loose stuff. Yet, I prefer it when you put a little bit of you and make an interpretation of the animal. That really amazes me..
