An Afternoon at the Honolulu Zoo

Here are some sketches of animals I made at the Honolulu Zoo.

I was lucky enough to catch the elephants at their happiest, bath time.

The flamingoes in Hawaii are more orangey pink than the reddish pink I am used to seeing.

The turtles, lemurs, and gibbons shared a living space.

These hippoes were quite fond of one another.

The tigers were beyond gorgeous, but moved around the most, making drawing difficult.

Giraffes, zebra, and a rhino.

Before my trip to this zoo I did not know what a gharial was. Now I do and I sort of wish I didn’t. They are absolutely horrifying. Fun to draw, but horrifying.

I was so absorbed with the gharial section that I drew the trees around it.

    The Zoo is a great place. We could spend hours there. Your drawings bring back fond memories.
