For Nature Drawing this week we took a field trip to the Smithsonian Naturalist Center in Virginia. There's a huge room full of taxidermy animals and all kinds of specimens to draw. I spent some time drawing the image you see here. . .yes, that is a fawn in a jar. I'm not sure if I was more fascinated or weirded out by it, but the baby deer itself was so beautifully intricate I couldn't stop looking at it. The image you see here is a WIP, hopefully later I'll post some finished drawings as well as some of the thesis stuff I've been working on.
