When I took the kiddos to the zoo recently, I thought the biggest obstacle to my getting in a few quick sketches would be them getting bored waiting on me. Instead of them getting impatient, they were a dream to be with and it was the other patrons that ended up frustrating me.
The day wasn't a total loss, we got to get out of the house, get some exercise, see some cool animals, and enjoy each others company. Plus with everyone carrying a camera, I have lost of photos to draw from. I hooked my laptop up to the TV and tried to do a quick sketch of the poor gorilla. It was really easy to see on the big screen and the colors seemed truer. Now if I could only figure out how to keep my laptop resolution from changing and rearranging my desktop icons each time I hook up to the TV, I'd be set.
