Sketching in the Museum

The Sydney Sketchers spent a couple of hours sketching in the museum at Sydney University today. I tackled a couple of beetles - a Rhinoceros Beetle and a rather pretty one from South East Asia. Mostly done in waterproof ink with my fountain pen, with a little bit of colour wash. We were asked to use dry media so a good chance to use a neat water brush.
