A Rawsome day!

We went to Bristol Zoo yesterday, with the intention to draw. It was a glorious day, the sun was out and yeah, just great. There were lion cubs, baby meerkats, prairie dog pups and a day old seal cub! An ideal day for me I have to say.
We got to the zoo as it opened and spend the whole day there, which made forking out the £12 entrant fee worth it.
I got down to sketching rather late in the day though as it was heaving, half term and all. It made it a little bit awkward. I had one girl decide to sketch with me then have a massive tantrum because she didn't like her drawing. Her mum managed to pacify her though by redoing the drawing for her. (I thought it was rather good though).
I havn't drawn from life in a little while so the drawings are a bit rought, and I have to say I was completely taken by the cubs so I drew them most.
