When ever I get the chance I spend time in the collections of the Academy of Natural Sciences drawing and sketching skulls, bones and taxidermy mounts.
The museum also provides the opportunity to see a lot of cool animals close up in the dioramas. Since the diorama animals are not moving the artist is able to sketch in as much detail as wanted.

I will include diorama/ collection sketches from time to time to keep the dinosaurs from completely taking over. Today's piece is a watercolor and pen and ink mixed media. It is the skull of a female wolverine skull. Males have a much larger sagital crest.
