Animal House

Continuing with the idea of simplification. I visited the zoo. Can things we so easily recognize become abstract? In this case I think not. Although they are evocative, they just miss transforming into something more than themselves.

Going at it from a different angle I spent some time at the zoo trying to quick sketch animals in motion using watercolor. Here's an example. I think it is more successful even if crude. At the very least, being ecumenical in media helps one learn. What do you think? I'd appreciate some feedback.
